PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — We woke up Thursday morning to a sugar-dusted wonderland after a clipper system deposited light snow across the area – and it won’t be long before we have yet another shot at snow! Friday will dawn dry and frigid, with morning temperatures in the teens and low twenties across the region. It’s in the afternoon after 1 p.m. or so that a system will lift in from the south.
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Kate Bilo met a Philadelphia family who showed us how much it meant to them to be helped through the Joy of Sharing Toy Fest and the Salvation Army. Eleven-year-old Maurice, 10-year-old Darryl, and 8-year-old Marcus Sutton of Olney love sports and videogames. Bilo asked them, “So on a scale of one to 10, how excited are you about Christmas?”They also like thinking up the next generation of toys. “Two robots,” Darryl said.
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Whether you love it or hate it when winter rolls around it seems to be the one thing many of you look for when you see the 7 day forecast. So how much snow will fall in the Philadelphia area this winter? We crunched the numbers, analyzed the atmospheric and oceanic trends and studied previous similar winters to create our 2017-18 winter forecast. We also got a little extra help from Mr. McCall’s 7th grade science class at Cherry Hill’s Carusi Middle School.
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".
