CARBONDALE — The city of Carbondale got some new traffic lights on Friday but the real story is about the person who procured them. Hopefully, we all have something we’re passionate about. For John Michael Gigliotti of Carbondale, that something is traffic signals. “I can tell all the signal head manufacturers, the controllers, like, almost any traffic signal-related part you can think of,” he said.
SCRANTON — An artist unveiled his latest work in Scranton Friday, a mural depicting the city’s west side. People in west Scranton hope the mural draws attention to what’s going on inside the building it’s painted on. A splash of color now welcomes visitors to Washburn Street in west Scranton. West side painted in its own image on the side of a building that needed a little something extra. “This was just a big box…and it just kind of blended in to the scenery.
MOOSIC -- Boxes upon boxes filled the offices at Moosic Alliance Community Church Thursday. Church members carefully counted the boxes full of shoe boxes bound for children around the world. The church in Moosic has collected the donated gifts and prepared them for shipment for almost 20 years. Pastor Eric Ferguson is new to the church- this is the first time he's watched his members' meticulous operation for Operation Christmas Child, a national organization.
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".
