Here’s a unique opportunity to go for a great walk with a Roxborough neighbor to do something very few people get to do these days — follow water from where it rises on a small stream in the city to where it flows into the Schuylkill River.On Saturday, March 24, at 9 a.m., the Schuylkill Center, continuing our Year of Water, offers “Follow the Water: Stream to River to Canal,” a hike with Roxborough resident Sandy Sorlien.Sorlien, an environmental photographer currently featured in our...
Last week’s Nor’easter with wicked gusts and blinding snow knocked the region for a loop, downing trees and blocking hundreds of roads.Here in Upper Roxborough, both Shawmont Avenue and Umbria Road were closed by large trees falling across them within a hundred yards of each other; Bell’s Mill Road, that vital link across the Wissahickon to Chestnut Hill, was likewise closed.
Last Wednesday, Feb. 21, Philadelphia’s balmy temperature topped out at 77 degrees, blowing past the 1930 record by five degrees. While we all loved it, it was absolutely weird and completely abnormal.All across the East Coast, weather records shattered. Washington’s temperatures shot up to 82 degrees, 35 degrees above normal; New York hit 76 while chilly Boston had back-to-back 70-degree days.
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".
