(CBS) – A Catholic school on Chicago’s West Side is dealing with the fallout from a drive-by shooting that has prompted football rivals to forfeit games. For the second time in a month, a Chicago area high school has declined to play at Chicago Hope Academy’s home field. During a Sept. 29 game, gunshots from a nearby gang-related drive-by brought both competing schools to the turf at Altgeld Park. No players or fans were injured.
(CBS) – A Waukegan couple is asking where their vehicle is after bringing it to a repair shop. It’s gone, and no one seems to know what happened to it. “We took a $20,000 vehicle there and nobody knows where it’s at – no one,” says Maurice Hood. The upgraded 2003 Hummer was his dream car. When the car stopped running in March 2016, Hood and his wife, Keiya, brought it to the AAMCO Transmissions in Waukegan for a needed part.
(CBS) — Faster, safer, more efficient – even greener. Those are just some of the reasons a handful of Chicago businesses are going cashless and only accepting credit or debit cards. But one Chicago alderman says the practice pushes some consumers away. The business that have gone cashless say it’s improved their day-to-day operations, but if a new city ordinance goes through, those businesses could face steep fines and potentially lose their licenses.
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".
