URBANA — It's been a month-and-a-half since Lincoln Square's new tenant opened its doors. With the paint now dry and the kinks worked out, the new First Christian Church of Urbana is ready for its Sunday grand opening. "We expect it to be packed," Pastor Eric Friedmann said Friday. "Our team is ready to serve and love on all those people who come. They're also ready to give up their seats if need be." And they just might have to.
A year and a day after 21-year-old Deonta Rozier was found dead in a field between Thomasboro and Urbana, his mother still waits for her son to come home. “Terrible. Just terrible,” Violet Rozier said Wednesday. “I can’t believe this happened to him. I can’t believe they haven’t found the person or people that killed him.
CHAMPAIGN — For the past 10 years, the Champaign Public Library has been recognized on Library Journal's list of America's Star Libraries. But this year is different. With this year's rating, the library joins only 69 others in the U.S. on the journal's "All-Time All-Stars" list. And the library staff couldn't be happier. "We're very pleased and very excited for our library," said Director Donna Pittman. "It's a very special list to be on."
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".
