It is exciting to know that Chicago is competing to become Amazon’s second headquarters. To that end, I would like to recommend another site here for HQ2, the Stated Street corridor from 55th Street to 63rd Street. This is the dividing line between Chicago’s Englewood and Washington Park communities. Both neighborhoods would love to see more opportunities for gainful employment.
Last spring, the Illinois House passed a bill, by a vote of 62-55, to eliminate a state ban on taxpayer-funded abortion under the state’s Medicaid program. I voted “no.”For 36 years, Illinois has prohibited the use of taxpayer dollars to pay for abortion except in the cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother. This also has been the policy of the federal government since 1975. The ethics of abortion have been debated in Illinois and across the country for decades.
Bluster doesn’t work, except maybe when cutting real estate deals, but try telling that to Donald Trump. The president’s foreign policy is largely bluster, devoid of practical strategies, and he demonstrated the limits of that approach again Tuesday in his address to the United Nations. Calling North Korean leader Kim Jong Un a “rocket man on a suicide mission” and threatening to “destroy” the country won’t stop Kim from lobbing more missiles over Japan as he pushes to develop nuclear weapons.
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".
