PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Trump Administration wants to make pooling tips legal again. That means restaurant managers would collect the tips, then distribute them as they see fit, but Pennsylvania’s Attorney General is one of many who thinks it is a bad idea. When you go to a restaurant, if you like the service you receive, you tip your server. “I work really hard and take really good care of my customers. My tips reflect it,” said Michelle Flores, who works as a server at a local restaurant.
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The University of Pittsburgh is cracking down on alcohol use at fraternities and sororities after a student had to be hospitalized. The university has put all Greek life organizations on probation following what’s being called a “serious alcohol-related incident” involving an unidentified student. Pitt has not identified the fraternity, but the national office of Sigma Chi has confirmed it is their local chapter that was involved.
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A jump in the number of flu cases across the country means you may need to protect yourself from getting sick as you head to your holiday destination. “In the last several weeks, we’ve seen an increase in the number of flu cases here in Western Pennsylvania and nationally,” said Dr. Marc Itsowitz, of Allegheny Health Network.
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".
