In our city of Big Shoulders—a constant changing eco-system, whether its residents desire change or not—Chicago’s creative community might be one of the largest and last vocal critics of this rapidly transforming town. One of the most visible and vocal critics is Don’t Fret, an artist who for the better part of a decade has pasted up around town his wry, somewhat trippy critiques of Chicago’s collective identity, from surviving our brutal winters to the pains of gentrification.
LOGAN SQUARE — Someone opened fire on a family standing outside a house party in Logan Square Monday evening, hitting a 6-year-old girl in her back and leaving her in critical condition. Around 8:10 p.m., the girl was outside the party in the 2100 block of North Bingham Street when someone drove up and fired multiple shots out their window before fleeing, according to Officer Hector Alfaro, a Chicago Police spokesman. One witness said she heard as many as nine shots.
OAKLAND — They had spent 40 years bumping around in the darkness of perennial cellar-dwellers, so when the Golden State Warriors finally emerged into the sunlight Friday — under confetti cannons and a clear blue sky — to celebrate their NBA championship with a victory lap through downtown, players and fans alike kept rubbing their eyes. It may have been just the brightness of the day, but many still appeared to be in disbelief.
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".
