Philadelphia first knew Lauren Hitt as the woman who banned Jim Kenney from Twitter. Kenney was about to launch a last-minute mayoral bid. His tendency to let loose on social media — where he had called New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie “fat assed,” opined about Viagra commercials and offered that “Jasmine smells so exotic” — wasn’t going to help. Looking back, Hitt wonders why Kenney took her advice.
Gov. Wolf accepted the resignation of the chairman of the state Board of Education on Thursday after the Inquirer and Daily News reported that a number of women said he had pursued sexual relationships with them when they were teenagers and he was years their senior. The chairman, Larry Wittig, had joined the board in 2001. "The alleged behavior that has come to light is reprehensible," J.J. Abbott, Wolf's spokesman, said in a statement.
Annette DeMichele was 17 when, she says, her crew coach, Larry Wittig, took her and another rower on her elite team to a nude beach after a West Coast competition. Wittig was 32 and married. DeMichele was a fresh 1981 graduate of Harriton High School in Lower Merion. “He told me I had perfect breasts,” DeMichele said.
The city sold two Point Breeze lots for $15k to a church group that said it planned to build affordable housing. Four years -- and a few flips -- later, a developer is about to put up two $500k homes there. Great reporting from @CraigRMcCoyhttps://t.co/G5p8klmW5s
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".
