The Chicago Air & Water Show returns next weekend for the 59th year, but the event's official announcer will also mark a major milestone.Before Herb Hunter became the event's announcer in 1988, the retired Air Force pilot flew in the show for two years and even sang the National Anthem a few times.That was more than 30 years ago when the show was centered at Lakeshore Park before moving to North Avenue Beach.
Storms that moved through the Chicago area Wednesday night caused trees to topple over onto homes and roads in northwest suburban Antioch. Thursday, residents of the East Loon Lake subdivision spent the day cleaning up.Neighbors said the storm came and went within minutes. Anita White-Brown remembered shutting her windows before taking cover. "My mom and I ran and got in the bathroom," she said. "We could hear some of the trees snapping.
Rain fell in heavy bursts early Tuesday morning, before turning steady - even light in some areas - as commuters hit the road. But wet roads create slowdowns, so it was still a good idea to leave early.Storms moving south and east brought heavy rain from the Chicago suburbs to northwest Indiana around 6 a.m., over area construction zones. Drivers should take it slow to avoid accidents.At that time, light rain fell over the northern suburbs and area expressways, just enough to be a nuisance.
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".
