PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A major conference is coming to Pittsburgh next year. Rail-Volution 2018 will once again put our city in the national spotlight. It’s one of the leading transportation conferences in the country and is set to take place Downtown in October 2018. “Bringing this conference, I think, really brings a national attention to what Pittsburgh has and what Pittsburgh can be using transit as the anchor,” Chris Sandvig, of the Pittsburgh Community Reinvestment Group, said.
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — They are often first on the scene of a crime or emergency, and save countless lives. Many people say emergency workers are unsung heroes, and that is why this week is dedicated to honoring the men and women who work for EMS. Every day is different for EMS District Chief Jeffrey Meyer. “The call volume, the type of call, the weather, everything comes into play,” says Chief Meyer. He’s worked as a paramedic in the city of Pittsburgh for going on 33 years.
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Police departments from all over Allegheny County were in a park in Pittsburgh today. At first glance, it may have looked like something was very wrong. However, they were actually participating in a life-saving training exercise. Riverview Park looked like the scene of a search for a missing person.

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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
