Enjoy some tasty chicken wings for a good cause this Sunday, July 30, in Schaumburg as my fellow judges and I determine this year's "Best of the 'Burbs" winner from among 16 area restaurants at the Woodfield Area Children's Organization's 17th Annual Wingfest & Bags Tournament. The event will be held at Drink, 871 E. Algonquin Road. Regular admission for this adults-only event is $35 and includes two beverages and unlimited wings.
Schaumburg Mayor Al Larson, who has overseen the renaming of several public buildings and spaces to honor people who have served the village with distinction during his 30 years in office, will soon receive such recognition himself. Trustees voted unanimously Tuesday to rename the Prairie Center for the Arts next to the Robert O. Atcher Municipal Center after Schaumburg's longest-serving mayor.
After 16½ years and one controversial refurbishment, Schaumburg's fleet of Woodfield-area trolleys from Pace Suburban Bus has been replaced this month at no extra cost to the village. The second generation of the iconic dark-green trolleys retains its predecessor's historic appearance while adding new amenities, such as wi-fi, low-floor ramps for improved accessibility, security cameras, a modern GPS system and bike racks for up to two bicycles each.
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".
