It's the middle of the night near Cermak and Canal, and the police lieutenant is angry. There's a dead body, fresh out of the South Branch. But before beginning to unravel the homicide, he has to handle a federal prosecutor who's on the scene, trying to get past the police barricade.
If any American city is properly harnessing the transformative powers of good landscape architecture and improved public greenspace, it's Houston. Newer spaces such as decade-old Discovery Green and the beautiful Buffalo Bayou Park, which unspools across 125 acres on downtown's edge, are giving soft, green edges to a region long marked and carved by concrete. Now chalk up another win: The newly transformed Emancipation Park.
GOLD COAST — A group of thieves used a BMW to break down the doors of the Magnificent Mile's Louis Vuitton, a midnight crash-and-grab that cost the high-end store dozens of handbags. At 12:02 a.m. Monday, the men were inside the dark-colored car in the 900 block of North Michigan Avenue when they hit another car, police said. The men then used the car to ram the revolving doors of the Louis Vuitton store on the block several times.
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".
