CHICAGO — Peggy Montes still remembers when Mayor Harold Washington dedicated the undeveloped property on the lakefront as park and named after the first non-native settler of Chicago — Jean Baptiste Point DuSable. While her faith in the project to begin has faltered in the nearly three decades since the announcement, it has finally returned, the founder of the Bronzeville Children’s Museum said Wednesday.

UKRAINIAN VILLAGE — A co-living startup called Common that’s targeting millennials has opened its first Chicago building in Ukrainian Village, offering intrepid renters a shared apartment with everything included — even the roommates. The New York City chain’s first entry into Chicago is in a four-story white concrete, steel and glass three-unit apartment building dubbed “Common Damen” across from Mariano’s grocery store in the 2000 block of West Chicago Avenue.
LINCOLN SQUARE — Construction equipment is about to rip up an acre of grass at Welles Park and replace it with a wild kingdom, complete with mud kitchen, sunflower fort and sensory garden. Members of the park’s advisory council and greening committee were up with the sun Monday morning to attend a groundbreaking and blessing ceremony as work gets underway on the park’s new NaturePlace area, which, paradoxical as it may seem, is designed to bring a bit more of the Great Outdoors to Welles.
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".
