The current facility for The Adams Company, on the western edge of Dubuque, is only a sliver of its more than 130 years in the city. "In 1883, we were primarily a foundry," said Steve Arthur, the company's CEO. "Anything you could pour metal into. Manhole covers, heating products and we were in that business until about the mid-1950’s." The pictures, from a Loras College collection on the city's history, shows a different era from when The Adams Company was in downtown Dubuque.
Keith McKeehan had the idea for better bowling back a few decades when he was a younger man and trying to pick up spares in his spare time. "I was in the industrial business and discovered this stuff sucked the moisture off your hand very quickly," Keith said. "I was an avid bowler so I decided to sew some up in the middle of a sweat sock and I did it for years. I had some friends who wanted one. Then I decided to take it to market because I knew It worked but I never did."
Chad Frommelt stands on one of the seams of the Ainley Kennels & Fabrication building on the western edge of Dubuque. He's been with Ainley for 23 years as the building gets larger and larger. "A lot of people expect we have a warehouse full of this stuff and we could go out and grab it," said Frommelt as he acknowledges more square footage to handle the company's growth. "We'll have more room soon but that's not what the room is for."
Every NHL player in 2018 should offer a "thank you" to former Blues owner/CEO Mike Shanahan, who passed away this weekend. He signed off on big $$ contracts to break owner collusion. Always spent for a better product.
@DGQuoVadimus I think my daughter left one more bobby pin out in my car. I saw it in the passenger seat and didn't throw it out the other day. Since it doesn't appear obvious on-camera, I'll ride it out. (Bet it won't happen again...)
News anchor problems... when you get to work and realize all of your cuff links are at home -- and your dress shirt doesn't have them. Time to always keep a pair in my desk drawer. Need one more bobby pin. @OhTheHumanity
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".
