(CBS) – It’s a big week for roller derby, a sport that began in Chicago more than 80 years ago. The sport may have reached its pinnacle here, when 50,000 people packed old Comiskey Park in September 1972. The derby rink was on the pitcher’s mound. A Chicagoan named Leo Seltzer invented the sport. He put on the first roller derby at the Chicago Coliseum in August 1935.
(CBS) — In one of Chicago’s most crime-ridden neighborhoods, there is a group of people standing up to say: We choose to live here and we love it. It’s called Englewood Rising, and it’s all about repairing a reputation. Pastor Jonathan Brooks says he understands why some people may think about the problems, such as violence, when they hear the name Englewood. “It’s not that that’s not a part of our narrative — it’s just that its incomplete,” he says.
(CBS) – A Schaumburg woman was raped and strangled in her apartment just before Easter. For the first time, Tiffany Thrasher’s family is speaking out and taking legal action against the apartment management and the company that employed the alleged killer. Just 33 years old, Trasher was a woman of faith who rescued dogs and served in her church. “She was there for everything,” her sister, Misty King, says. So, it was a red flag when Tiffany didn’t show up for choir rehearsal on Easter weekend.
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".
