If you love Linvilla’s Pumpkinland, if you crave Chadds Ford’s Great Pumpkin Carve, you’re going to want to get a load of The Glow. The giant jack-o'-lantern display is coming to West Fairmount Park starting Friday night, and it promises to up the ante for the region’s gourd shindigs, right in the city.
Jessica Kilpatrick has yet to see the film she stars in. She has, however, lived it. One year ago, the Hartford, Conn., native was in New York, performing with the Amy Marshall Dance Company, and teaching at the Joffrey Ballet School when she accepted the job as head of children and adult programs for the Pennsylvania Ballet. Kilpatrick knew her new gig would include teaching and overseeing classes of novice through pre-professional dancers, ages 2 through 82.
When Brigantine, N.J. native and Temple grad Brittany Lewis vied for — and won — the title of Miss Black America two weeks ago in Philadelphia, she didn’t do it for the crown. As Miss Delaware 2014, Lewis already had one of those. She didn’t do it for the prizes, attention, or glamour — not that she didn’t appreciate those perks. She did it for… research. Lewis is a third-year Ph.D. student at George Washington University.
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".
