Results of an autopsy conducted on the body of slain Chicago Police Cmdr. Paul Bauer released Thursday show he suffered six gunshot wounds. Two of the wounds were to his head and two were to his right chest. He also suffered a gunshot wound to the left neck and right forearm. One of two cell phones Bauer was carrying was also struck by a bullet, according to the autopsy, which was performed by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.
A man who was shot as a teenager by a Chicago Police officer was awarded $1,241,907 Thursday by a Cook County jury. Derquann Wilson was 15 when he was shot by Officer Sajit Walter in 2011. Wilson, who sued the city in September of last year, had asked jurors to award him more than $8 million. It’s the second time the case has been tried. The first trial, in February, ended in a hung jury when one holdout juror voted against Wilson receiving a cash award from the city.
Thousands of home caregivers employed through a state program designed to assist people with physical disabilities won a victory Tuesday after a seven-month court fight to collect a 48-cent-an-hour raise that’s been withheld under by Gov. Bruce Rauner’s administration. Cook County Judge David Atkins handed down a decision that can be summed up in two words: pay them. The modest pay bump was part of a bipartisan budget compromise passed last summer over a Rauner veto.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
