The success of crime-fighting measures in Englewood has prompted some Chicago civic leaders to plunk down $1.5 million to start a similar program in the city’s South Shore neighborhood. Their donations will fund a Chicago Police Department nerve center that pulls together crime data and high-tech systems, including ShotSpotter, a program that pinpoints in real time where a gun is fired. The big-name donors toured the center in Englewood, one of the more violent areas in the city.
Former President Barack Obama will headline the Economic Club of Chicago’s annual dinner meeting in December. Members were notified today by email that Obama will speak at the group’s Dec. 5 meeting.

And last year, Elon Musk, the billionaire co-founder of PayPal and SpaceX, spoke.
President Donald Trump took a break from vacation for a trip to the White House to address his duffed statement about the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. He’ll return to Trump National Golf Course soon enough. But who will be there to golf with him? Only a few Chicago golfers have teed it up with Trump, whom Sports Illustrated described as a golfer who exaggerates his scores and takes rule-breaking mulligans (or re-do shots). AAR Corp. CEO David Storch has golfed with Trump.
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".
