CHAMPAIGN — The $132 million Memorial Stadium renovation project that Illinois announced in October is now on the back burner, athletic director Josh Whitman revealed on Tuesday during a media roundtable at the Bielfeldt Athletic Administration Building. Instead, Illinois will break ground in early 2018 on a standalone football performance center that will be attached to the south end of the Irwin Indoor Practice Facility at the northeast side of Memorial Stadium.
BEMENT — Shortly after noon Monday, traffic lined the north and south sides of Macon Street, patiently waiting as a freight train barreled through Bement. For Connie Gudgel, who was out for a bike ride with friend Caroline Trott, it was a "heartbreaking" reminder of what happened less than 24 hours earlier in the Piatt County village of 1,700.
CHAMPAIGN — On Friday afternoon, Zink Zhang watched a young Chinese woman, presumably a University of Illinois student, walking alone near the intersection of Green and Neil streets. One week after Chinese visiting scholar Ying-ying Zhang went missing, he was none too pleased. "I just thought that was really dangerous," he said. "There are some girls who I don't think are taking this as serious as they should. Even in the daylight, it's dangerous because that's when this happened."
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".
