Batavia aldermen asked questions Tuesday about stormwater drainage, energy efficiency and developer financing, as they began their review of the proposal to put apartments in the historic Campana factory building. Evergreen Real Estate Group wants to put in 80 apartments. At least 64 would be set aside for government-subsidized housing, as the construction would be financed in part with $12 million worth of Low-Income Housing Tax Credits.
West Aurora schoolteachers have a new two-year contract with District 129, with a salary schedule that is almost unchanged from the previous contract. It does change the way the district handles exceeding the maximum class sizes in elementary schools, to give teachers more of a voice in the process. The board approved the contract 4-0 Monday. Trustees Richard Kerns and Christopher Sparks abstained from the vote because their wives are district employees. Trustee Ira Lathan was absent.
Elburn trustees are intrigued by a proposal to add household hazardous waste and electronics collection to residents' garbage service. But they want to know if they could test the program for a year, rather than as part of a request to extend the village's garbage contract five years. The village's contract with Waste Management expires Oct. 1, 2018.
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".
