DES MOINES, Iowa -- Iowans might call Hawaii the perfect get away. "One, it was to get away from cold weather, and the best part was it was our 35th wedding anniversary," said Tom Lloyd. Tom and Janet Lloyd spent twelve days in paradise. "We did whale watching and snorkeling. The whales were so active it was like spring break in Maui for them." Time began to fly by until Saturday when the two were traveling on an island tour of the Kona Coffee District of Hawaii.
DES MOINES, Iowa — Born to Burundi parents in a Tanzanian refugee camp, Des Moines North High School senior Robert Nishimwe is thankful for the better life they chose by coming to America when he seven years old. “In the U.S. there will be educational opportunities and different opportunities you get that you cannot in this refugee camp in Tanzania,” said Robert. Now a leader among his peers, in an American classroom, Robert still has strong pride in his African roots.
PLEASANT HILL, Iowa -- Thursday morning's 4:30 wake up call to dogs barking was nothing unusual, "The dogs usually get up around that time to go outside," said Billy Sowder Jr. What alarmed him were the doors to his vehicles open in the driveway of his Pleasant Hill home and two licensed firearms, a muzzle loader and .40 caliber Smith & Wesson, missing from his truck. Billy said, "I went to my gun cabinet and grabbed my AR and quietly walked outside.
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".
