Drivers and snow removal crews alike worked to navigate slick streets Thursday after a wintry blast rolled into the metro. "We're in pretty good shape,” said Omaha Street Maintenance Engineer Austin Rowser. "We had a lot of drifting, early, a lot of wind blowing and some cold temperatures.”"I don't think they're that bad. It depends on which neighborhood you're in. The main roads are pretty clear,” said Curtis Brown of Omaha.
It’s been two years since an explosion and fire gutted a section of the Old Market. One restaurant has since re-opened. It's back on track and doing well. They weren't the only business impacted; The Market House, for example is still boarded up two years later. Nick Bartholomew used to own The Market House off 11th and Howard.
It's an alarming scare especially this time of year that can happen to any household -- maybe even yours. A Yutan, Nebraska mother says she feels lucky to be alive and she credits her carbon monoxide detectors. "Instantly, I kind of jumped up and thought, 'Oh my gosh, what's going on? I have no idea. What's on fire? I'm not smelling anything,'" Holly Sutter recalled. A normal day at home with the kids turned into the scare of her life. Her gas fireplace was on and seemed to be just fine.
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".
