(CBS) — Did it seem like your trees shed all of their leaves over the weekend? You’re not alone. CBS 2 Meteorologist Ed Curran reports from Pesche’s florist and garden center in Des Plaines to offer an explanation. It happened so quickly. Suddenly, there is a carpet of leaves. Though some trees are still holding onto their leaves, many fell after the first really cold spell of the season. Among the fallen leaves are some ugly ones with black splotches.
(CBS) – Cleanup continues along Chicago’s Riverwalk, which was closed because of flooding along the Chicago River. The Riverwalk is the city’s newest gem, but too much river left not enough walk this weekend, after record rains brought the river to a height that even saw tour boats suspend operations. Monday morning, the water taxis and tour boats were moving again. Barricades didn’t stop some people from visiting small parts of the Riverwalk that had recovered.
It was two decades ago but it seems like yesterday - the morning I had a ringside seat at a turning point In the history of the British Monarchy. The Washington Post described a seat inside Westminster Abbey at the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales, as the hottest ticket on Earth. Watching, as I did, many of the 1,900 guests filing into the abbey around me, it was as if Madame Tussaud's waxworks had come to life.
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".
