CHICAGO (CBS) — The post office in East Chicago, Indiana, reopened on Thursday, after a postal worker was injured in a pipe bomb explosion a day earlier, but the FBI has yet to determine who is responsible. The FBI confirmed the blast was the result of a single pipe bomb that went off shortly after 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, causing minor injuries to a postal employee.
(CBS) â€“ Nearly four dozen dogs arrived in Chicago early Sunday from a Houston shelter flooded by Hurricane Harvey. As CBS 2â€™s Lauren Victory reports, their journey isn’t over. After 18 hours on the road, it felt good to stretch those furry legs, in a new home, half a country away. â€œWe had to avoid some floodwaters.
(CBS) – Caravans of Chicago area volunteers hopped on the road Wednesday to help with recovery efforts in Houston. Henry Craig gives W&W tow truck a final rinse before the mucky work ahead. He and five other tow truck drivers are Texas-bound to recover flooded cars. The list is already 900 vehicles deep. The time commitment is unknown. “It’s rough, but hey, this is giving back,” Craig says. The call came from the feds via his towing company’s insurance partner.
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".
