The number of roadway deaths in the United States is on the rise, and experts say bicyclists are at particular risk. A recent study by the Governors Highway Safety Association shows 818 people died riding bikes in 2015, a 12.2 percent increase over the prior year. While bicycle deaths were a small fraction of the 35,092 fatalities on U.S. roadways that year, bicyclists were the fastest-growing group dying on the road. It’s no secret cyclists are vulnerable sharing the road with motorists.
After years of debate, study and delays, Lehigh County commissioners narrowly supported a plan to renovate Cedarbrook’s South Whitehall Township facility Wednesday night. By a 5-4 vote, commissioners endorsed a $68 million plan to add a four-story addition to the building and renovate two century-old wings into office space and apartments for independent seniors. The plan would keep the population of the nursing home at 670 residents but would eliminate rooms that house more than two residents.
It’s no secret the Lehigh Valley’s growing. It may not be bursting at the at the breakneck speed seen during the 2000s, but by 2040 another 150,000 people are expected to be living here — more than the current populations of Allentown and Easton combined. Corporations are finding room here, too. Warehouses certainly aren’t a new development, but they’re sprouting up in record sizes.
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".
