Jordan Mendiola of Highland Park says he developed a love of running while in physical training at a U.S. Army boot camp after graduating from Highland Park High School in 2016. Q: You decided to run a Chicago Half Marathon on Sept. 24. How did that come about? A: In four months in boot camp, I went from a two-mile time of 14 minutes and 30 seconds to 12 minutes and 47 seconds. I now regularly run 10 to 12 miles. I believe that with each success should come a bigger and more ambitious challenge.
North Shore School District 112 may implement a new math curriculum in January out of a sense of urgency over lagging test results. Fewer than half of students met or exceeded expectations in math on the 2017 PARCC assessments last spring, according to District 112.
Lincoln Elementary School and Elm Place Middle School will close in 2018, North Shore School District 112 officials revealed during a school board discussion Tuesday. The plan, to be approved by the District 112 school board Oct. 3, spares Ravinia Elementary School, which, like Lincoln and Elm Place, was originally set to close this year. That plan was put on hold last December following the news the superintendent was leaving.
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".
