It is not hard to feel connected to the young men who lost their lives in the new movie “Lone Survivor,” which tells the true story of four Navy SEALs who were overwhelmed by enemy fighters while on a mission in Afghanistan.However, the connection runs a bit deeper for the State College community.One of the men in the movie, Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy, made his home in Sproul Hall and cheered for the Nittany Lions from the stands of Beaver Stadium not too long ago.
The Central Pennsylvania Festival of Arts, more commonly known as Arts Festival, has remained a time-honored tradition in State College since its inception in 1967.Attendees have come to expect the usual from the festival — a weekend of art, music and entertainment.However, each year features a few tweaks.
Megan Lamb took to the mattresses in the fight against sexual assault on Friday.Joined by more than 100 students throughout the day, Lamb walked through campus and downtown State College baring the weight of three mattresses and the desire to honor Emma Sulkowicz.Sulkowicz, a senior at Columbia University, said she will carry her mattress with her everywhere until her alleged rapist is no longer attending the university, which dropped the case and denied her subsequent appeal.
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".
