The Windy City is under fire for apparently turning public art into a political message. The City of Chicago installed a 5-foot tall, golden sculpture that spells out “Real Fake” directly in front of Trump International Hotel and Tower in the city’s busy downtown area, along the Chicago River. A city spokesperson said the message and placement of the art is not a political statement. It was just, the spokeswoman said, coincidence. 'BLOOD OF STEVE SCALISE IS ON YOUR HANDS!'
A Minnesota judge is expected to finalize the list of 12 jurors selected to decide the fate of Police Officer Jeronimo Yanez—the policeman who shot and killed Philando Castile in a traffic stop last July. Castile’s girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, was in the car and broadcasted the aftermath of the shooting on Facebook live. The video went viral with tens of millions of views and sparked heated protests, resulting in arrests.
The good news coming out of Chicago also serves as a sad reminder of just how bad the city's violence is: 239 people were murdered as of May 31, according to Chicago Police. That is down slightly from 247 during the same period last year. In 2016, there were nearly 800 homicides in the city, a 20-year high. "If anybody thinks that last year's murder rate in Chicago is OK, and if you are a leader in this city, you should not be," said Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson.
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".
