North Little Rock's City Council approved a road construction contract Monday aimed at alleviating traffic congestion on the city's western edge and for the benefit of residents of Maumelle, its western neighbor. Council members voted 7-0 to award a $445,131 contract for the Counts Massie Road extension to the project's low bidder, Bobby Kennedy Construction of Quitman. Council member Charlie Hight was absent. The road extension passes through North Little Rock and Maumelle.
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is getting recognition from the North Little Rock City Council for his recent induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. A resolution expected to fly through the City Council “with a great deal of pride” today, according to the legislation, will formally congratulate Jones for his induction into the Hall of Fame at Canton, Ohio, on Aug. 5.
Approaching its final stages of construction, a long-awaited road extension that is supposed to lead toward a planned interchange for Interstate 40 near Maumelle and part of western North Little Rock now seems more like reality than a dream, officials in both cities said. The U.S. House of Representatives first approved a federal highway bill in 2005 for a "third entrance" into Maumelle, something city officials had envisioned for at least 10 years before that.
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".
