One of the most common questions we get at WeSpire is “why does every employee need to understand our sustainability goals? Shouldn’t it just be for the facilities team or used as a way to rally passionate Millennials on the green team?” To answer, we often speak about the value of seeing the entire business through a sustainability lens, both to identify new opportunities for impact and to see potential risks that are impossible for any one leader or team to see.
Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) officials, representatives of redeveloper Related Midwest, and Alderman Jason Ervin (28th Ward) on Sept. 18 discussed plans for a new community library with several floors of public housing included in the building, parking issues, and a requirement for 1,085 units of CHA housing to replace some of the 3,596 public housing apartments lost in the area since 2000 when the CHA began its Plan for Transformation.
Near West Side residents have been protesting the idea of a new Taylor Street library featuring low-income housing upstairs on Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) land that formerly housed the ABLA Homes public housing project. More than 660 people signed petitions asking for a delay in a Chicago City Council zoning committee hearing over six stories of low-income housing above a new library at 1328-1350 W. Taylor St. They said they were not informed well enough nor consulted early enough.
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".
