An eastern Iowa art museum, founded close to 150 years ago in 1874, says it has found a strategy to keep people coming. Those who work at the Dubuque Museum of Art say their goal is to paint a picture that will broaden their visitors' horizons. Though they may not all hang on the walls at the same time, the museum is home to more than 2,000 works of art. When there are that many pieces, the goal becomes rotating different pieces and exhibits that get a strong reaction from the people who see them.
A priest in Dubuque County has spent more than two-thirds of his life with the Roman Catholic church. After more than 60 years, the Reverend John J. O'Connor is retiring from his parish. As the bells rang in another Ash Wednesday mass, churchgoers of all ages rushed into Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Petersburg. For the head of the church, however, Rev. O'Connor, it is his last. Rev. O'Connor says he has been semi-retired, to an extent.
Once a week, people in Dubuque have the option to buy lunch at a so-called pop up restaurant. Veterans Bill, Dick, Ron, and Del have been coming to the Joliet Event Center on Locust Street every week for years, sharing laughter over a basket of food. For these guys, they say it is the best deal in town on Tuesdays and an atmosphere that reminds them of a mom and pop's restaurant.
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".
