An auction tomorrow night will benefit a Shellsburg baby who was born with heart defects. Deacon Reuter was born in February and has spent his entire life so far at the University of Iowa Children's Hospital in Iowa City. Not yet six months old, Deacon has already gone through more than many people will in their lifetime. "181 days in intensive care here," his mother Caitlin told us. Deacon has already had two open heart surgeries and there are plans for at least one more.
Students statewide are required to get a new vaccine before starting school. Iowa students will not be able to attend classes this coming school year without first having the meningococcal vaccine for meningitis. "7th graders need to have at least one dose, 12th graders need two doses unless they received that first dose after the age of 16, if it's after the age of 16 they just need the one dose," says Heather Meador, Sr. Public Health Nurse at Linn County Public Health.
This photo shows some of the land Olin bought out after past flooding. The community of Olin has had their fair share of flooding over the years from both the Wapsi River and Walnut Creek. "We've lived here for four years and evacuated out three years," says Jessica Lemmer. More than a dozen homes have been bought out by the city to make way for grassland in an effort for flood mitigation.
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".
