About 30 people gathered at an Arlington Heights church Friday morning to discuss the racial divide in the U.S. and preconceptions they have about racism. The discussion at Our Saviour's Lutheran Church was led by the Rev. Clyde H. Brooks, chairman of the Illinois Commission on Diversity and Human Relations. The event was aimed at suburban community leaders, clergy and residents. The attendees were mostly white suburban residents, although people with other racial backgrounds participated.
Mundelein High School Superintendent Kevin Myers has received a one-year contract extension from the District 120 board. Myers' contract was to expire in June 2019. It's now extended to June 2020, thanks to the school board's unanimous vote Tuesday night. Myers said the board's support allows he and his team to focus on student learning. "(That) allows us to be our best," he said. The contract extension doesn't include any changes, other than the time frame, school spokesman Ron Girard said.
Trustees are divided, but Mundelein officials are going to develop an ordinance that would restrict the sale of cigarettes, other tobacco products and e-cigarettes to people 21 or older. Following a lengthy debate Monday night, three of the board's six trustees supported increasing the minimum age for buying tobacco products from 18, while two strongly opposed such a change. The sixth said she hasn't yet made up her mind.
Darwyn: Your impact on my writing -- nay, my storytelling -- was immeasurable. Old Wounds would not exist without the Parker GNs. We only met once, at the MegaCon hotel bar, and though I was nervous you greeted me like an old friend. I miss you and you art. Happy birthday. https://t.co/wrTwOtrh7X
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".
