The crosswalk at Sixth and John Street is one of the most obnoxious things on the University of Illinois campus. It’s not as obnoxious as Pike Nation, and doesn’t last as long as the line in the Green Street McDonald’s at 2 a.m., but it’s still ridiculous. The crosswalk is about five feet long, but the walk sign lasts over 90 seconds. Like many things on this campus (Brother Jed, October Lovers Club, Suburban Express), there really isn’t a good explanation for the why this is a thing.
You’ve spent far too much time trying to pull off the greatest dupe since Trump got a bunch of poor white people to think he’s their savior, but that didn’t work and you’ve since dropped out. Bu hey, you’re still on campus and realize you have to figure out how to kill time given that you have a surplus of it now. Sit in on lectures you find interesting: Hey, just because you don’t go here anymore doesn’t mean you can’t get your learn on.
Late Wednesday evening, local pornographer Hugh Hefner was found dead in his home. He was 91. Prior to joining the lewd underbelly of tasteless nudity, Hefner graduated from the University of Illinois, with a degree in psychology in 1949. Following a successful stint as a copywriter for Esquire magazine, Hefner left the world of respectable magazine journalism to pursue a life in the world of pornography.
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".
