Cardinal Blase Cupich forwarded suggestions Friday for Chicago Catholic priests and deacons for their homilies this weekend as the nation reflects on what happened in Charlottesville. The three page resource is titled "Addressing the Sin of Racism" and is divided into three categories: "The Problem, The Answer and What Are We Called to Do?" The priests and deacons are told "we witnessed this past week a vile replay of history at its worst." As well, the memo notes "Racism is real.
It was the largest crowd that anyone can remember for the Democratic Party Chairman brunch Thursday in Springfield. State Party Chairman Mike Madigan was the first to speak, calling out Gov. Bruce Rauner's "radical agenda." He also offered a "thank you for being good Democrats." After Madigan's opening remarks, he walked out. He did not bother to stay to listen to the 22 speakers on the program.
Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner has done his best to never mention President Donald Trump by name. But on Wednesday, days after he initially hesitated to call the deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, an act of terrorism, Rauner issued his strongest criticism of Trump yet, saying his comments "damage America." "I vehemently disagree with the president's comments about the tragedy in Charlottesville," Rauner said during Governor's Day at the Illinois State Fair.
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".
