OMAHA — Weeks of planning and preparation paid off when the immense task of moving a Toledo Zoo elephant to Omaha went exactly as planned. The zoo’s 14-year-old African elephant bull, Louie, made the roughly 700-mile trip to his new home at Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium overnight Thursday into Friday by truck. Including several breaks, the drive took about 13¾ hours.
Toledo Zoo staff, with the help of specialized movers, packed up the 14-year-old African elephant bull Thursday evening and started him on the road to the next phase of his life. The first few feet toward his new home at Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium were almost excruciatingly slow as his steel transport crate was carefully pulled away from the elephant barn and loaded on a lowboy semi-trailer.
The Glass City’s celebrity pachyderm is on the road to his new home. Louie, the Toledo Zoo’s 14-year-old African elephant bull, was loaded into his steel transport crate and hoisted onto a lowboy semi-trailer late this afternoon. He will travel about 700 miles overnight, bound for Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium to participate in a conservation and breeding program. Born in April, 2003, Louie was the first successful elephant birth at the zoo.
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".
