The teenage girl accused in a fatal machete attack on an Uber driver made a brief appearance in court Wednesday, but the hearing provided no further insight into what might have motivated the killing. Authorities say Eliza Wasni, 16, stole a machete and a knife from a Walmart store in Skokie, got into the Uber driver's car blocks away and began hacking and stabbing him from the back seat moments later as the car crossed into Lincolnwood shortly after 3 a.m. May 30.
Jeff Ziolo had burst into his sister's office last week to gloat about the tenth-row Guns N' Roses tickets he'd just bought, knowing she was the bigger fan. Now Lori Wolff plans to attend the November concert in her brother's honor. Ziolo, 35 and a member of a local heavy metal band, was fatally beaten and stabbed early the next morning in his Des Plaines home â€” authorities say by a childhood friend.
While volunteering at her daughter's school, Rachel Gregersen noticed something that bothered her. Her 8-year-old daughter was the only African-American she saw in her class. "I was seeing the world through her eyes for the first time," Gregersen said. "It's important for children to see a reflection of themselves, to see the beauty in themselves and know they're not odd."
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".
