What began with a baseball card collection more than 50 years ago has turned into mountains of sports memorabilia: trophies, plaques, artwork, uniforms, equipment, newspaper pages and photos. The collection of artifacts spans more than 100 years of sports history, and, this fall, will finally be on view to the public when the DePace Sports Library and Museum of Champions opens in Collingswood.
For two days at the end of October, the Schuylkill is transformed. White tents are hoisted along the river, slender boats fill the water, and athletes and spectators assemble on the dappled banks. “It’s almost like Brigadoon,” said Ellen Carver, president of the Head of the Schuylkill Regatta, set this year for Saturday and Sunday.
In the fall of 2016, news of a fete fit for a wizard made its way around the internet, popping up on the Huffington Post, Teen Vogue, and Condé Nast Traveler just weeks before the Harry Potter Festival in Chestnut Hill. Triple the usual number of Potter fans turned out for the annual festival, leading to long lines and shortages no magic wand could fix. The 2016 event had an estimated 45,000 attendees, said Martha Sharkey, executive director of the Chestnut Hill Business District.
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".
