When in doubt, do what’s right. Gov. Bruce Rauner believes in a woman’s right to have an abortion. He’s said as much and everybody knows it, whatever the political downside for him. So he should just go ahead and sign House Bill 40, legislation that would provide insurance coverage for abortions to Illinois workers and Medicaid recipients and protects a woman’s right to have an abortion if the U.S. Supreme Court ever overturns the landmark decision in Roe v. Wade.
Our neighbors are hurting. The people of central Mexico and all of Puerto Rico have endured violent thrashings by natural disasters this week. Their pain extends to the Chicago metropolitan area, home to some 1.65 million Latinos of Mexican descent and nearly 205,000 of Puerto Rican descent. We offer sympathy to the families of those who perished in Mexico from a 7.1-magnitude earthquake Tuesday and to the scores of people in Puerto Rico who must rebuild their lives after Hurricane Maria.
As usual, Jesse Jackson’s column “Right to Vote Needs Constitutional Protection” (Sept. 18) was timely and informative. The fact that voting rights are administered by states is incredibly important for all Americans to know. And the despicable voter suppression laws passed in many red and swing states should be a reminder to all Americans that voter rights need protections. His call for voter registration reforms include many great ideas, including AVR.
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".
