CHICAGO -- On the western edge of O`Hare International Airport, hundreds were present with a heavy load to pull for a great cause. 85 teams from all over competing for the title to see who can pull one of two jets, a total of 12 feet, the fastest. The two jets were an airbus A300 and a Boeing 737-900. The money raised, about $150,000 Saturday, going to special Olympics Illinois.
Tonight, the first flights into and out of South Florida are in the air. At Chicago’s O’Hare, American flight 242 from Miami had many storm weary travelers aboard. It was one of the first out of the airport after a morning of canceled flights. Paola Caicedo rode out Irma and is one of the lucky ones who never lost power. “Everybody's without power right now,” he says. “We were able to cook throughout the storm. A lot of people don't have that.”While Lestra Cole from Hammond arrived days late.
Hurricane Irma forced medical students to evacuate the Caribbean and many are in the western suburbs after surviving the monster storm. American medical students like Rachel leib are back on U.S. soil in suburban St Charles after they were evacuated by the U.S. military. Irma devastated St Marteen, where they go to school. More than 200 students have been evacuated over the past 3 days, after riding out the storm and seeing how nature can wreak havoc.
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".
