WSIL -- Like many communities across Southern Illinois, Vienna is preparing for the solar eclipse next month and hoping to take advantage of the thousands of people expected to visit the area. "We've been talking about this for over a year," said Phillip Morris, the Vienna and Johnson County tourism director. "It's a big tourism draw of course and it'll also bring in a lot of money because the people are going to spend money for gasoline, they're going to eat in the restaurants."
WSIL -- One day after visiting Southern Illinois to talk about education funding, Gov. Bruce Rauner issued an ultimatum to lawmakers: either send him SB1 or he'll call a special session. "I want that bill. That bill must be on my desk by noon on Monday," said Rauner. "And if it is not on my desk by noon, I will call a special session for the general assembly, demand they come back here to Springfield and do their jobs."
WSIL -- Just weeks after lawmakers handed him a major defeat, going around him to push through a budget with big tax hikes, Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner is picking himself up off the floor and turning his attention to a new issue taking center stage: school funding. But it could lead to another long, polarizing fight with the most powerful politician in the legislature, creating a crisis unlike anything the state has ever seen.
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".
