KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The owner calls her Barbara, and 41 Action News caught up with Barbara on 17th and Main in Downtown Kansas City. When you step foot inside Barbara the box truck you can get a bob, as Bess Lamoreux oversees buzz cuts, trims, layers, and more at this high and tight mobile operation. The idea came to Lamoreux about a year ago. “My husband hates getting his hair cut, and he was sitting at lunch with me at Hallmark.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jill Erickson knows a lot about the Blue River. It travels nearly 40 miles, across two states, three counties and 18 municipalities. It flows from Johnson County Kansas, through the Kansas City Metro. And every year hundreds work to revitalize and clean it up. Unfortunately, parts of it have become a common dumping ground and that’s why Erickson and others at the Heartland Conservation Alliance want to do more than cleanups to preserve it.
NORTH KANSAS CITY, Mo. — One of the few independent movie theaters in town is looking to expand, and they need your help. Screenland Armour Theater first opened its doors in 1928 as a silent movie theater. It’s evolved quite a bit, and changed owners several times over the years. But the independent theater is hoping to make a bit of a transformation once again. 41 Action News caught up with one of the owners, Adam Roberts, to explain. “We’ve outgrown these theaters,” Roberts said.
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".
