During his few months as interim president of the University of Iowa, Jean Robillard’s salary ranked him as the ninth-highest paid public university leader in the nation for the 2015-16 fiscal year. UI President Bruce Harreld’s salary, in contrast, ranked No. 62, and former Iowa State University President Steve Leath’s salary ranked No. 71 among presidents and chancellors of public institutions that year, according to the most recent rankings from the Chronicle of Higher Education.
The Iowa Board of Regents will appoint its chief lobbyist for the University of Iowa to head the board’s staff until a new executive director is hired. The salary proposed for interim position, $200,000, is nearly 30 percent more than the salary cap the Iowa Legislature placed on the positions nearly a decade ago. The regents have tapped Keith Saunders to serve as the board’s interim executive director in the wake of Bob Donley’s announced resignation earlier this month.
The ACLU of Iowa and six Iowa attorneys filed documents last week demanding changes in the state rules for how Iowa public schools use physical restraints and seclude students. The "petition for rulemaking" comes less than one month after the Iowa Department of Education found that some uses of seclusion rooms in Iowa City schools were in violation of state and federal law.
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".
