Dramatic video released by police shows the moment a one and a half year old child falls from a moving car in West Dundee. A car following behind the vehicle quickly stops and the teens inside spring into action. One gets out to help the child while another calls 911. "A child like, my estimate is two to three years old, literally just launched out the drivers side door," the caller tells the dispatcher. "While the car was going?" the dispatcher asks. "Yes, turning a corner," the caller responds.
There have been nearly 20 carjackings in the last week and residents in the West Loop say something needs to be done. Alexandra Villarreal was the victim of a carjacking over the weekend in the 1200 block of West Hubbard Street. "He's sliding into the car and I'm like why is he getting into the car!? I'm yelling at him," said Villarreal. The suspects, believed to be driving a white van, were caught on surveillance tape. "I was paranoid this morning," Villarreal said.
Family members are still desperate for answers, but Thursday night they gathered in Zion to remember a mother, sister and friend who was taken too soon. In the bitter cold, Latatia Shepard's family gathered near the spot where she was killed just 24 hours earlier. Danyel Dorsey is Latatia’s sister. "We just want to take moment to say how much we love her," she said. Latatia was walking in the 2200 block of Lewis at about 5 p.m. Wednesday when she was hit by a vehicle and left for dead.
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".
