But wigs can cost thousands of dollars and oftentimes are not covered by insurance. CBS 2’s Susanna Song introduces us to a woman whose mission is to make wigs more affordable. Ashley Junkunc is excited for her first year of college. It hasn’t been easy getting here.
CHICAGO (CBS) — A person was shot by a Chicago Police officer early Sunday in the Belmont Central neighborhood on the Northwest Side. At 3:07 a.m., Grand Central District officers saw a vehicle commit a traffic violation and conducted a traffic stop in the alley of the 2800 block of North Mulligan, according to a police statement. Officers approached the vehicle and saw a male armed with a gun in the back seat, police said. An officer and a sergeant fired their weapons, striking him.
Nine years ago, he was a victim of gun violence; on Tuesday, he graduated as the valedictorian of his 8th grade class at Wadsworth STEM Elementary School. He’s not only smart, he’s also wise beyond his years, and he credits that to a tragedy in 2008. Martrell was only 4 years old when he was left paralyzed, after he was struck by a stray bullet in gang crossfire in Englewood. Graduating at the top of his 8th grade class nine years later is one of Martrell’s proudest achievements.
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".
