The organizer of a canceled pet expo that left animal rescue groups and small businesses concerned about refunds said it has been put in a “financially devastating” position, but it remains devoted to its exhibitors. St. Louis-based Amazing Pet Expos was scheduled to hold the Windy City Pet Expo in late July in Schaumburg. Dozens of exhibitors purchased booth space and thousands of people were expected to attend the weekend event.
Homeowners who were hoping to extend the lives of their decks with a brand-name resurfacing product say they may need new decks altogether after applying the product to their backyard investments. At least two class action lawsuits have been filed against Behr and Home Depot, alleging Behr’s DeckOver deteriorates quickly and causes damage. DeckOver, a more expensive alternative to traditional paints and stains, is marketed as a long-lasting product that brings new life to old wood and concrete.
Eviction of homeless residents from a "tent city" underneath Lake Shore Drive viaducts will go ahead after a judge ruled in favor of the city of Chicago Friday. The ruling comes on the heels of a lawsuit filed this month on behalf of homeless residents by the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless. "The plantiffs do not have a constitutional right for the city to provide housing or to live under the viaduct," Judge Sidney Schenkier said in the court's ruling.
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".
