Want to help raise money to fund autism research? The Philadelphia Eagles are here to help. The team's Autism Challenge is a combination of a cycling ride and a 5K walk/run. The money raised from the event goes to go directly to autism research and programs at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Drexel University and Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. The event is slated to be held on May 19, 2018. But fundraising is already beginning.
If you are an Philadelphia Eagles fan, or know one, you're familiar with "Fly Eagles Fly." It's the fight song for the football team and it plays after every Eagles touchdown. It's played at tailgates and is randomly sung on SEPTA trains. The song came into its own in 1997, when the Eagles Pep Band set about introducing and teaching the game to fans tailgating. It became a staple after every touchdown in the 1999 season, according to Sports Illustrated. On the road to victoryOn the road to victory!
On Feb. 2, I'm hoping Phil doesn't see his shadow. That's because I'm tired of winter and ready for an early spring. And, let's be honest, aren't you? An early spring is just what the doctor ordered on Groundhog Day. Here are some reasons why:1. Bomb cyclones. Thanks to that weather phenomenon we've had pretty much two months worth of winter condensed into two weeks. It definitely feels like we've all had to deal with temperature in the teens more this year than in previous. I'm not a fan. 2.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
