A Schaumburg home builder has filed a class action lawsuit against the real estate giant Zillow. This is believed to be the first lawsuit of its kind against the website. If you've ever bought or sold a home, you've likely looked at the site to get an idea of the home’s value. Vip Patel, President of Castle Builders, says people are relying on these estimates to decide how much a home is worth and ultimately impacting the real estate industry nationwide.
Each January I pack up my carry-on bag, toss in my favorite gold-lined flip flops and head South. Those flops are going on year seven of travel. Unfortunately, they spend eight months out of the year tucked away in a closet in cold Chicago. They needed a dusting! This year, I not only went south but way south about 5,600 miles to Buenos Aires. My first time in South America. Let me break down the journey for you. A four-hour flight to Mexico City from Chicago, followed by a five-hour layover.
The opioid epidemic has a string of non-profit organizations looking for ways to save lives. Some are giving local law enforcement the tools needed to help people survive this epidemic. The antidote Naloxone is one of the drugs that has pulled people out of an overdose. It’s what the Jordan Filler Foundation wants in the hands of first responders. They say thousands of lives have been saved because of it.
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".
