WHEELING, W.Va. (WTRF) - Show of Hands, put on by Wheeling Heritage, is quickly approaching the Friendly City on Wednesday. Albert Einstein once said, "Creativity is contagious." For Ziklag owner Jessica Clark-McDowell that saying is personified inside her shop where she helps give 31 artists a platform to sell their work. She says she wants to help them, but also give back to local charities. "We do put a portion back out into the community," said Clark-McDowell.
WHEELING, W.Va. (WTRF) - Show of Hands is a special program you only see in the Friendly City, put on by Wheeling Heritage. The organization has helped countless people gain a few extra funds to better their groups. Wednesday the 24th they're planning to do it again, this time with four small businesses. "I don't think there's any losers in the Show of Hands," said The Empress Emporium retail associate Dominique McAvoy. "I think it's a great opportunity for all of us to showcase."
WHEELING, W.Va. (WTRF) - If House and Senate GOP leaders can't pick up the votes to keep the government open past midnight on Friday, we will see a shutdown. Which most experts believe is inevitable. Dr. John Poffenbarger is a political science expert who tells 7News that issues with national security and military stay in function, but things like museums and parks will shutdown and there will be potential delays in benefits.
"It is now complete."
For @WTRF7News Pittsburgh Playoff Special I introduced you to Ron Pulley. He's been a #Steelers fan for over 40 years. His quilt has over 80 signatures on it.
Well, today he got the final, and most important, one. @JeromeBettis36 made his dream a reality. https://t.co/RfbxwZ95tK
Michael Callaway works in the area and says he's concerned there was a dead body found in such an isolated location. He spoke exclusively with me about what happened when they discovered it. The story on @WTRF7Newshttps://t.co/M5FH3gtIGX
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".
