(CBS) – For more than six months, residents of a northwest suburban apartment complex have been on edge after a series of attacks. Police now believe the same man may be behind them. There is a sign welcoming you to the East Park apartments. But you’ll also find warning signs there as well: a sketch of a man Rolling Meadows police are looking for. The drawing is of a man who sexually assaulted a woman during a home invasion June 30.
(CBS) — Skokie village leaders deadlocked on whether to opt out of Cook County’s new minimum wage increase and paid sick leave ordinance. For now, the village will follow the directives. At a village board meeting Thursday, opponents and supporters voiced their views. Local pizzeria owner Randy Miles says the new polices are potentially chilling to his business. One measure boosts the county minimum wage level from $8.25 an hour to $10.
(CBS) — An attempted abduction is sending chills though a northwest Indiana neighborhood. Ron Kraus was with his son, Ryker, setting up for the child’s first-year birthday party in their front lawn Thursday night in Walkerton. A motorist in a minivan pulled up the driveway, and the driver asked for water to cool his over-heated radiator. Kraus says he offered to help and stepped inside his home. That’s when the stranger picked up his son and started running, the father tells CBS 2’s Jeremy Ross.
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".
