Lincolnshire mother Terhi Tuominen thought it particularly important this year to observe the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday in a way that lived up to his legacy. So she brought her children — Laina Moles, 9, and Finn Moles, 7 — to Highland Park's Martin Luther King Day of Service after finding the event listed on a website. "The political environment is so negative," explained Tuominen, as her daughter painted a "peace" sign at one work station devoted to King's life story.
The Highland Park-Highwood Legal Aid Clinic is urging "DREAMers" to act quickly to renew their applications for temporary deportation protections under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, noting federal policy could again change at any time. "It has been a tumultuous year," said Susan Shulman, executive director of the legal aid clinic. "Our job as attorneys is to act in our clients' best interests, and I feel like acting quickly is in their best interests at this point."
Educators in North Shore School District 112 have outlined a long list of steps they're taking to reverse a decline in student test scores and create instructional consistency across district schools. The district is purchasing new curricular resources and bringing in math coaches for some teachers. The district has begun pacing instruction so teachers know what material should have been covered — and the standards students should have mastered — at specific points of the school year.
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".
