PEORIA -- While people should take caution while shopping this holiday season, there's nothing to fear and the city overall is safer than it was in the past. That's the message from a group of pastors, city officials and law enforcement who held a joint press conference at City Hall on Tuesday afternoon.
There may not have been any ghouls on site, but members of Ghostbusters Peoria were ready as they helped inspire shoppers at the East Peoria Kroger to donate non-perishable food for needy families as part of CityLink's Stuff-A-Bus program.
In this Nov. 7, 2017 photo, Caleb Pellinghelli, left, and Orion Briney work at repairing their commercial fishing nets on shore at Detweiller Marina in Peoria, Ill., prepping nets for the next day of fishing. Caleb works as part of the crew for Orion Briney, who has spent 35 years as a commercial fisherman on the Illinois River in Peoria. Orion and crew fish for for Asian carp, which include bighead and silver carp, as well as grass carp and buffalo fish, which they sell at market up North.
You might think this Ladybug is cute, but it's actually an Asian Lady Beetle; they bite, winter in homes and leave yellow stains on walls. Brought to the US by the USDA on purpose to kill crop insects. They do that, but unintended consequences not beloved by us non-farmers https://t.co/HtLUPMWGn2
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".
