For a job that pays more than $87,000, it would seem like state lawmakers could make the trek to Harrisburg for the fewer than 100 session days scheduled annually. But some lawmakers don’t bother with them all — and it is starting to hit them politically. State Rep. Kevin Haggerty, D-Lackawanna, has been absent since July — a feat first mentioned by ABC16, a Scranton-area television station. Haggerty has said he can’t go because of his divorce and a child custody issue.
For the first time in a while, Pennsylvania could end the fiscal year with a surplus — if several iffy revenue assumptions align perfectly. The surplus could be $41 million by June 30, 2018 and some of that money could replenish the empty rainy day fund for emergencies, according to Gov. Tom Wolf’s budget chief Randy Albright. “We think we will have at the end of the year a modest surplus, Albright said at a mid-year budget briefing Thursday in the state Capitol.
The old Allentown State Hospital moved closer to a possible sale Wednesday after the Pennsylvania House passed a bill that allows a government agency to negotiate with a prospective buyer who has expressed interest in the 195.2-acre site. The House’s passage moved Senate Bill 921 back to the Senate for the last legislative approval needed for the state Department of General Services to begin negotiating a sale to TCA Properties of Doylestown.
@carterd2DFS@MikePereira Ok I get it. But 2 last questions: Are NFL rules online and if so what page can I read where the control-to-the-ground-rule overrules breaking the goal line rule for a touchdown? Also what page explains the difference between a runner and receiver breaking the goal line?
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".
