(CBS) — There may be an explanation for the chemical odor plaguing some Avondale homes. Earlier this week, resident Sara Suh detailed the problems experienced by her family. A toxic-smelling odor has been seeping in for the past several days, forcing the family to open windows as the weather has gotten colder. “It’s been a nightmare,” she said. Others in the neighborhood have complained, too. At Suh’s urging, several state and city departments have come here, but no one has been able to explain it.
(CBS) – Ah, Christmas music. Is it music to your ears, exactly seven weeks before Christmas? While some are crying “too soon” for anything Christmas-related, businesses just can’t get enough of it, even though Halloween is barely over. There’s no dispute over the beauty at the Macy’s holiday window displays. But it’s the timing that troubles some on State Street. “Let’s have Thanksgiving first. Let’s let Thanksgiving have its day,” David Laws says.
(CBS) – CBS 2 News is learning there’s a Chicago connection to Paul Manafort, the indicted former campaign manager for President Donald Trump. A local bank CEO has been talking to the FBI. In August 2016, Chicago banker Steve Calk cited his hometown in explaining why he was supporting Republican Trump for president. “I want to see my town, Chicago, back on top, and I think the best way to do that is to help bolster our economy,” he told CBS 2 Political Reporter Derrick Blakley.
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".
