A Des Moines man has been charged with animal abuse for allegedly stabbing a dog. On July 24, two dogs were in a fenced-in area together in the 4000 block of Northeast 45th Drive and began fighting. After they were separated, Michael Thomas Mitchell, reportedly stabbed one of the dogs, a pit bull mix, at least twice with a pocket knife, according to a news release from the Polk County Sheriff's Office.
The plaza would be part of a $40 million apartment complex proposed by TWG Development in the Market District section of the city's East Village neighborhood. Plans are taking shape for a new pedestrian plaza in the burgeoning section of Des Moines’ East Village known as the Market District. The plaza would sit between two proposed apartment complexes scheduled to break ground next year near Southeast Sixth and East Market streets.
The apartment tower at the former Younkers building site is scheduled to break ground by Dec. 1. The developers behind Blackbird Tower, a proposed 33-story apartment complex in downtown Des Moines, announced Friday they will set aside 20 percent of the building’s units for low-income renters. The affordable housing component and other details came to light in a city memo published Friday about the financing of the high-profile development.
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".
