POTTSVILLE — The average population at the Schuylkill County Prison has inched closer to its approved capacity over the past four months. There was an average of 254 inmates at the prison in July, according to Warden Gene Berdanier’s report during the monthly prison board meeting Wednesday. The highest monthly average of the year was 255 in March. The population peaked at 271 in July. The facility has an approved capacity of 277.
POTTSVILLE — The roads less traveled in Schuylkill County have been getting more attention. Since Gov. Tom Corbett’s transportation plan was enacted in 2013, the state’s Dirt and Gravel Road Maintenance Program has seen its budget jump from $5 million to $35 million annually and now includes low-volume roads.
An assistant professor at Penn State Schuylkill was staying only a few blocks away from Barcelona’s historic Las Ramblas district when a white van plowed into tourists Thursday, killing at least 13 people and injuring 100 more in the terror attack. “We were eating outside an outdoor cage and people started running like a herd of cattle and motioning to take cover and we heard a gun,” Cathy Fiorillo, assistant professor of theater and speech, said in an email Thursday evening.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
