It’s a rematch. For the second year in a row, Swissvale VFD and North Braddock VFD each advanced out of the first round to face each other in the Sweet Sixteen of the Ultimate Pittsburgh Fish Fry. Swissvale enters the matchup as the highest vote-getter in round one. North Braddock competed in one of the closest races of round one and emerged victorious. When it comes to this year’s Sweet Sixteen showdown — Will Swissvale win again? Or will North Braddock even the score?
The controversial statue will then be relocated. Pittsburgh’s controversial Stephen Foster statue will be removed by April, city spokesperson Tim McNulty confirmed to The Incline today. That timeline follows recommendations made by the city’s Art Commission in October, after weeks of debate and discussion about the statue. At that meeting, the commission recommended the statue be removed within six months and that a new home be identified within a year of its removal.
The story of the Pittsburgh Lenten Fish Fry Map involves a bad sense of direction, a love of Pittsburgh and two things that are as Pittsburgh as it gets — fried fish and tech. About 10 years ago, Hollen Barmer went to her first Pittsburgh fish fry. Not a native — she’s originally from Memphis — Barmer loved the “quirky and special experience” of a fish fry and the excuse to go to churches and other places she wouldn’t normally visit.
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".
