A recent visit to Chicago brought back “nothing but really happy memories” for actress Jenny Slate, best known for her stints on “Parks and Recreation” and “Saturday Night Live” and films including “Zootopia” and “Gifted.”“I first came here as part of the ‘Cherubs’ program at Northwestern for theater students when I was in high school,” said the Massachusetts native, adding, “I also went to my best-ever bat mitzvah that took place in Chicago.
Chicago native Marilu Henner seemed to surprise even herself when she admitted, “I’ve made something like 46 feature films — plus so many TV shows and movies — but ‘Imperfections’ is the first one I’ve been able to shoot in Chicago. I’ve shot all over Europe and the U.S., but never in Chicago until this one.”Calling from her Los Angeles-area home, the former “Taxi” star said she loved playing the mother of an aspiring actress, Cassidy (Virginia Kull), who sabotaged her real first break.
SEEN ON THE SCENE: Joy District in River North continues to be a true celeb magnet. Recent sightings have included actress Naomie Harris (“Moonlight,” “Skyfall,” “Collateral Beauty”), and a ton of pro athletes like the Blackhawks’ Vinnie Hinostroza, the Bulls’ Nikola Mirotic and the Broncos’ Trevor Siemian.
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".
