It is small in stature — the one-story building, tucked between larger buildings on Davenport's Harrison Street.But big things have been happening inside Joe's Barber Shop. It's not just that it's been a venue for community meetings on heavy issues, such as race, that make Joe's meaningful. The bigger impact is Joe himself.Joe McLemore's life was going nowhere; a series of dead-end jobs, flanked on the weekends by drinking and drugging. Then, love came along.
Hard times are better tolerated when you know people care. "It was very much appreciated," Sean McDonnell said Wednesday of the donations from Quad-City Times Wish List readers that helped his family.McDonnell's wife died suddenly in April, leaving him to take care of his son, Tony, who is disabled. As a result of the demands on him at home, McDonnell lost his job. Things got harder.
It was one of those breezy blue-sky days that make you wish fall would last forever.Friends were visiting from California, and we spent the day walking around Bishop Hill, working up an appetite for the Swedish meatballs.But the appetites outlasted the meatballs, so we decided by the time we left Henry County that we'd head to the Captain's Table. The restaurant on the Moline riverfront has long been one of my favorites and a go-to place for visiting friends.
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".
