A Cook County judge will decide next week whether a transgender student at Palatine High School will get unlimited access to the girl's locker room. The 18-year-old says she has been illegally excluded from changing with the other girls at the school. But opponents say that's not appropriate. "I just want to use the locker room like every other girl and change for my gym class,” said Nova Maday. Maday says all she wants is to be treated like every other girl at Palatine High School.
While much of the Chicago area basked in sunshine Tuesday, winter held its grip on northwest Indiana. A band of lake effect snow hammered communities in Lake County and continues to cause trouble in Porter County. It was a traffic disaster, with several accidents. "It seems like people forget. It's not anything new. But every time we get a snow people seem to forget the elements,” said Sgt. Ann Wojas. The fast falling snow caused an accident on 80/94 near Gary.
There was a protest march by farmers in Will County Thursday. They are angry about plans to build a huge new business park south of Joliet, which they say will increase truck traffic and decrease safety. But proponents say it's an economic windfall for a booming area. It was quite a sight in southern Will County as a parade marched down narrow rural roads, past empty fields and aging barns.
All lanes of 80/94 still closed in Gary after power line breaks and falls on interstate. Police say it will be at least 1pm before NIPSCO clears the wire and the road opens. Massive traffic delays throughout NW Indiana. @fox32newshttps://t.co/QJMrAVnrHz
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".
