North Side dog owners who have missed taking their pets to Foster Beach since rising lake levels destroyed its dog-friendly area nearly two years ago now have a designated space for their pups to play. A new dog park opened last week at Bryn Mawr Avenue and the Lakefront Trail in Edgewater, where 15,000 square feet of unused green space has been surrounded by a black, chain link fence, according to Ald. Harry Osterman.
The city is embarking on an initiative to further clean up the garbage pooling in the Chicago River along the Riverwalk. "We get a lot of trash in the river, and we have this beautiful new riverwalk that people are enjoying and we don't want them seeing plastic Coke bottles and Doritos bags," said Michelle Woods, riverwalk project manager in the city's Department of Fleet and Facility Management.
CHICAGO — If there's an unattended bag left on the CTA, 4-year-old Arco and his handler, Chicago police Officer Bob Gilleran, check it out. Arco is assigned to the Chicago Police Department canine unit to detect explosives on mass transit. He is one of 65 dogs that assist officers, a role that is highlighted in a new public art installation featuring more than 100 German shepherd sculptures standing guard downtown, mostly along Michigan Avenue.
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".
