CEDAR RAPIDS — On the move since being saved from demolition more than a year ago, the New Bohemia District building known as the White Elephant finally has a home on solid ground. Aylsworth House Movers of Wadena moved the 135-year-old, two-story structure on Thursday through an alley, and on Friday lowered it onto its new, recently poured foundation at 1305 Third St. SE.
CEDAR RAPIDS — Earlier this week Karl Burgess, with Schrader Excavating & Grading of Walford, was manning a high powered water pump draining a southwest neighborhood pond some estimate to be 14 feet deep in places. Little did Burgess realize he was entering a spat between citizens and the city over the pond’s removal. Neighbors, who have visited the pond and surrounding woods since the 1990s as a place for fishing or a peaceful walk, are lamenting the loss of their refuge.
Deleted an earlier tweet about MOU between city of Cedar Rapids and the school district. True the MOU didn't get public discussion, but the meeting packet includes some details and the MOU will go to council for final approval
The Cedar Rapids City Council is being asked to direct city staff to "finalize" a memorandum of understanding with the Cedar Rapids school district today, yet no transparency whatsoever about what will be in the MOU. City staff say its not finished. No draft has been released
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".
