Ramon Ross, 12, felt a personal loss when Harold Washington, Chicago’s first black mayor, suffered a fatal heart attack the day before Thanksgiving 30 years ago. It marked the death of a dream for the young boy who lived in the Ida B. Wells Homes, a public housing complex where the residents were predominantly African-American. “They said we might even get carpeting in the projects,” Ross told a Tribune reporter.
It’s tough to get a handle on Donald Trump’s political style, especially now. Conventional wisdom says he should focus on tax reform so Republicans will have something to tout in the forthcoming midterm elections. Instead, he is picking fights with GOP members of Congress and tweeting his frustration that Hillary Clinton isn’t being investigated, even as two of Trump’s campaign officials have been indicted and a third has copped a guilty plea.
In the beginning, the Chicago Marathon didn’t offer prize money, though the first winner could have used a little. “I have four part-time jobs, just to study for the ministry,” said Dan Cloeter, of Fort Wayne, Ind., after crossing the finish line Sept. 25, 1977. “I have to sacrifice a lot just to run a marathon.”Forty years ago, the Chicago Marathon had a tight budget. Its organizer, Chicago marketing guru Lee Flaherty, lost $65,000 of his company’s money during the venture’s first year.
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".
