(CBS) — Flooding frustrations come to a boiling point in suburban Mundelein. Residents say the village isn’t doing enough when it comes to managing major storm events. Mundelein was hit with record rain — about 6 inches in just 7 hours a couple weeks ago — but residents say larger infrastructure improvements are needed to prevent flooding.
(CBS) – Fake ride-share drivers are targeting people in some of Chicago’s most upscale neighborhoods. In several cases, riders get into the wrong car thinking it’s their ride, only to be greeted by a gun. Here’s how it works: People leaving bars and restaurants after a night out unwittingly get into what they think is an Uber or Lyft that they have ordered. Instead, an armed robber is inside. In recent weeks, Chicago police say at least five passengers were robbed.
(CBS) — It’s not just businesses and homes that have been significantly damaged in Chicago’s flooded far north suburbs. The flooding also took its toll at WJ Murphy Elementary School in Round Lake, which was supposed to open for classes in about a month. Though the water is now gone from the building, millions of dollars in repairs will be needed. Entire classrooms and every book in the library were submerged. No lunch will be served in the cafeteria anytime soon.
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".
