A 12-year-old boy is charged as a juvenile after police say he struck two teachers at Saucon Valley Middle School. The incident happened Thursday at the school at 2095 Polk Valley Road, according to Lower Saucon Township police. Police say the 12-year-old boy from Hellertown allegedly assaulted two teachers and damaged walls, a countertop and a phone inside a classroom. The boy is charged with aggravated assault and institutional vandalism, police say.
Bethlehem police arrested five people and seized drugs including fentanyl — a dangerous synthetic opioid — during a bust early Thursday morning. One man tried to leap to his escape from a second-story window in the apartment in the 400 block of Pawnee Street, police say. The man had moderate injuries and was taken to an area hospital for treatment, police say. The investigation began in December with tips from concerned citizens.
Gov. Tom Wolf issued a disaster declaration Wednesday for a “heroin and opioid epidemic” that’s killing Pennsylvanians daily and straining government finances as first responders rush to overdose calls in all corners of the state. Disaster declarations — normally reserved for natural calamities, not man-made crises — allow governors to waive certain regulatory and legal procedures to speed up recovery efforts without legislative approval.
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".
