A new round of construction on the much anticipated Navy Pier Flyover, which promises to transport lakefront path users over the traffic of two busy intersections, began Wednesday morning. It’s slated for completion by the end of 2018. The last segment of the flyover that needs to be built is an 800-foot stretch of elevated pathway that will connect the lakefront trail to the lower deck of the Lake Shore Drive bridge over the Chicago River.
Fioretti, 63, will announce his plan to challenge Preckwinkle for Cook County Board president Monday morning at a news conference to be held in south suburban Lansing. The event will be streamed live on Fioretti’s Facebook page. The announcement comes about a month after Preckwinkle’s massively unpopular penny-an-ounce sweetened beverage tax was repealed — leaving her politically bruised. News of Fioretti’s challenge is not a total surprise.
The giant deer statue along the southern banks of the Chicago River at Wolf Point — that watched over joggers and tour boats alike — is gone. All that remains, as of Monday, are four lonely concrete slabs where its hoofs once stood. Don’t be sad. It turns out the deer will have new home in the woods, literally. It will be placed in a sculpture forest on the grounds of the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Ark.
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".
