Lieutenant Governor Evelyn Sanguinetti visited the Robert Young Center for the second time Tuesday to discuss the opioid battle in the Quad Cities. Last month, Governor Bruce Rauner created the Governor's Opioid Overdose Prevention and Intervention Task Force, appointing Lt. Gov. Sanguinetti as the co-chair. Tuesday, she checked in with substance abuse professionals in the QC. The roundtable discussed several topics, including Drug Court, the Safe Passage Program, and mental health issues.
The Quad City area is no stranger to tennis. Pro tennis star Madison Keys started her career here. Now, another young player is looking to follow in her tracks. At just 10 years-old, Nicholas Patrick is taking QC tennis by storm. "It's just my passion. What I like to do every day over almost anything." Nicholas' father, Dan Patrick is a teaching pro in the area. He knew his son was gifted.
Veterans Day is Saturday, and when Rock Falls went to prepare their Veterans Memorial Park for the celebration, they realized they had a problem. The park had been vandalized. Crews were faced with broken light bulbs and stones, graffiti and a messy park. The Public Works Department quickly approved funds and the city called Firehouse of God Ministries. Their Pastor says he was honored to get the call. Vandals caused $3,500 worth of damage to the park.
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".
