It was supposed to be a day of celebration. But just before Sarah and Jose Rodriguez said “I do” in Mexico this summer, their destination wedding took a heartbreaking turn as Sarah unpacked her suitcase. Somewhere between Chicago and Mexico, thieves walked off with her most cherished possession. "I opened my suitcase and just felt my stomach drop. Everything was scattered. I had a bag with my jewelry in it. It was unzipped and the boxes were open and empty.” Sarah Rodriguez said.
Lenovo, the world’s second largest maker of personal computers, this week agreed to settle a complaint brought against it by 32 states, including Illinois. NBC 5 Investigates first brought you the allegations against Lenovo in 2015, when consumers in private lawsuits accused the company of sabotaging its own customers. The Federal Trade Commission and state attorneys general then weighed on the same matter, going after Lenovo en masse.
Have you ever received a doctor’s bill that made your heart stop? Dave Mann has. The Vernon Hills man went to a clinic for what he described as watery eyes and a stubborn cold. The diagnosis? Allergies. "They looked up my nose and asked me like 3 questions," Mann said. Uninsured at the time, he paid the $139 hospital bill on the way out. But Mann said what really got his nose out of joint came in the mail weeks later: a bill for $716. “I said, ‘Wait a minute. This is wrong,’” Mann told NBC 5 Responds.
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".
