DES MOINES - Every decision that is made at the White House and in Congress trickles all the way down to Iowa. What our leaders say impacts people and that's what we've been seeing with recent discussions about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. “I'm currently a senior at Grand View University. I’m a double major. I study Biology and Double Chemistry with a minor in Psychology,” says DACA recipient Lizeth Salazar-Klock.
DES MOINES - A sea of people swarmed the State Capitol to join Iowa's largest event to raise funds for Alzheimer's. "We have to fight back. It robs away your memory. The memories you've built with your family over your entire career. I think that makes it your entire life," said Lt. Governor Adam Gregg. In the crowd, we spotted Ken Gregersen. The fatal disease has taken control of his life for the past 7 years. "My wife Evie and I have known each other for I guess 66 years," said Gregersen.
MARSHALLTOWN - While national leaders are sorting out the future of DACA, local leaders are also stepping in. Marshalltown Police Chief Mike Tupper is urging Congress to pass legislation that will fix the current DACA problem. "I think there's a bipartisan solution for these problems. I think the vast majority of our country wants to see especially the DACA issue resolved. I think it's important for people to speak up. I know there are strong opinions on both sides of this issue.
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".
