CHICAGO (CBS) — Christmas may be more than a month away but that’s not stopping some from getting into the holiday spirit. CBS 2’s Vince Gerasole reports kids of all ages are not wasting time celebrating the season. At Pope John XXIII School in Evanston they’re already prepping for the big Christmas concert. When asked how busy things are? “I haven’t had lunch today,” says Nancy Marcheschi directing the choir.
CHICAGO (CBS) — The curious came to get a inside look at a west suburban mosque. Hundreds of inquisitive neighbors filled the Islamic Center of Wheaton for today’s event. Omar Haqqani hopes people left the open house with a better understanding. “The whole idea behind having this event is to let them know who Muslims are, what Muslims believe in and what the faith is about,” says Haqqani. He says at times since 9-11, there has been mistrust of the Muslim community.
(CBS) — Three and a half million Americans cope with epilepsy, but the condition can be treated effectively with medications. During Epilepsy Awareness Month, CBS 2’s Vince Gerasole reports the less expensive generic options may not always be as effective. For more than 20 years, Caroline McAteer has kept the seizers associated with epilepsy under control by taking a variety of medicines. “I take nine of these a day and I take seven of those a day,” she says. They can be pricy too, up to $7 a pill.
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".
