CHAMBERSBURG -- Dispensing medical marijuana in Pennsylvania is still a few months off. The providers, patients and the state health department are getting ready for the sale of a medicine that promises pain relief. Statewide, upwards of 6,000 patients, 100 physicians and 300 caregivers have registered for Pennsylvania’s medical marijuana program since the Medical Marijuana Patient and Caregiver Registry launched Nov. 1.
CHAMBERSBURG - When Dr. Ed Sponseller, a retired superintendent from the Chambersburg Area School District, was diagnosed with a rare form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2006, his son, Steve, ran a marathon the same year in his father's honor. Now, 11 years later, Steve will be running again, but this time in memory of his father, who lost his battle with the disease earlier this year. "It's definitely different, definitely sucks," he said.
GREENE TOWNSHIP - The morning of Sept. 11, 2001 was a morning like many other late summer, early fall days in New York: sunny, mild and full of promise. It was much like Sunday in Franklin County, the Rev. Bill Harter reminded attendees that day at this year's 9/11 Memorial Service at the historic Letterkenny Chapel.
@BBCCareers Oh dear! Fair enough trying to get more diverse views on air but surely they could get a researcher to look for them rather than ask like that. The experts they are looking for are unlikely to reply to a twitter call out!
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".
