The second annual Clarendon Hills Park District mommy-son date night Friday was an evening out for about 130 moms and young dates. The park district started the event, held at Clarendon Hills Middle School, in 2017, following several years of a daddy-daughter event. It was postponed a week this year because of the snow storm Feb. 9.
Students at Hinsdale Central High School are being pressured to stop a game they have played for the past six years because it might appear insensitive to victims of the Florida school shooting. The "assassins game" is open to all seniors at Central who pay $10 and are randomly assigned another student as a target to "kill" by hitting them with a Nerf gun or squirt gun, or marking them with a marker. The game continues for several weeks until only one person is left.
All 680 steps for the 31 floors of the Oakbrook Terrace Tower were in use Saturday for the American Lung Association's annual Flight For Air Climb. This marked the 27th year the Oakbrook Terrace Tower has hosted the event, which has raised more than $1 million since it began, according to Jill Thompson of the American Lung Association. Saturday's climb had $150,000 as a fundraising goal, with 650 participants expected along with about 250 volunteers and spectators, Thompson said.
@sydney_seda Hi Sydney. I am a reporter for The Doings. We are interested in using the Twitter photo of you and Lally Johnson from Senior Assassins for a story we are doing and wanted to see if you both are OK with that. Thanks.
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".
