Unemployment is trending down statewide, including in Central Illinois, though job growth remains slower than officials would prefer.The state added 41,000 jobs between January 2017 and January 2018, a .7 percent increase. That includes 600 in DeWitt and McLean counties and 100 in Macon County, according to Illinois Department of Employment Security data.“Across the state, we had 11 of the 14 metros show improvement,” said IDES Public Information Officer Bob Gough.
BLOOMINGTON — State Rep. Jeanne Ives thinks she has Gov. Bruce Rauner "in hiding" in advance of Tuesday's GOP primary. "He's really not answering questions from anybody, and he's not answering questions from ordinary Republicans. He's pretty much setting up closed-door meetings with his favorite Republicans, and not talking to the broader audience of even Republicans," she told The Pantagraph during a campaign stop Friday in Bloomington. "I'm an open book. Primary voters know who I am.
@RahrWestArt@McHistoryMuseum Couple additional notes today:
-The print version has a silly typo where Lovell and Zimmerman's names were swapped in the last paragraph. Lovell's salary is not public; Zimmerman is a volunteer.
-Lovell is returning to Route 66 after growing up a mile away from it in Oklahoma!
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".
