If you're moving to Chicago for a new job or need a place to live but don't know a soul here, a new breed of landlord wants your business. Forget about looking for a roommate on Craigslist or blowing your budget on an expensive one-bedroom apartment. They'll rent you a room in a building full of amenities and people eager to make friends.
Watches are out and sheepskin boots are in at a North Michigan Avenue building where footwear maker Ugg plans a store, boosting its exposure to Chicago shoppers. Ugg is taking over Swatch's Tourbillon store at 545 N. Michigan Ave. after signing a sublease for the 17,700-square-foot space, a Swatch representative confirmed. Ugg is moving to the Magnificent Mile after closing its store on the 900 block of North Rush Street, space that's being converted into a showroom for electric-car maker Tesla.
In the hot warehouse market along Interstates 55 and 80, many developers live by the mantra "build first, find a tenant later," breaking ground before filling buildings that can span a dozen football fields or more. Local builder Venture One Real Estate is taking that approach in Channahon, just west of Joliet, where it has started construction of a 1 million-square-foot warehouse on speculation, or "spec," without lining up a tenant in advance.
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".
