The city of Chicago is expected to take the first step toward filing a federal suit against U.S. Steel for repeatedly violating the Clean Water Act following a pair of toxic spills into Lake Michigan waterways by the company’s northwest Indiana plant, city officials announced Sunday. Mayor Rahm Emanuel was joined by leaders of several local environmental organizations at a news conference at City Hall where he declared the city will file a notice of intent to sue U.S. Steel on Monday morning.
He didn't bring the same fire as his bosses, but Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein did carry the same message about Chicago and crime as he spoke Thursday night at the annual dinner of the Chicago Crime Commission. “Chicago is one of America's great cities, but it has a serious crime problem,” Rosenstein said during a 20-minute address. “The city is afflicted with gangs, drugs, violent crimes, shootings and murders.
Authorities are searching for two suspects who were involved in an armed robbery in small central Illinois village and escaped arrest during a police pursuit Thursday that ended on Chicago’s South SideFollowing an armed robbery in Rantoul, 120 miles southwest of Chicago, State police began pursuing a vehicle with three suspects on Interstate 94, apparently near 95th Street in Chicago, as they headed north on the expressway.

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".
