MARION — The Iowa Department of Transportation Commission on Tuesday awarded more than $420,000 to the Marion Airport to widen and fix the facility’s runway. The commission voted 4-3 to award the $424,620 grant, which is contingent on the city of Marion updating its lease with the company that runs and maintains the airport and the Marion City Council completing an airport zoning ordinance.
CEDAR RAPIDS — For the first time since May, parishioners at one of the city’s oldest Catholic churches celebrated Mass in the sanctuary this weekend instead of the church hall. Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, 857 Third Ave. SE, held an open house, ice cream social and Mass on Saturday so parishioners could see the result of renovations that had relegated them to the hall deep in the building. People turned out in droves, happy to be back in the sanctuary before Christmas.
Each week in central Eastern Iowa, school age children who otherwise would go hungry over the weekend or until they can get a meal at school are given supplemental food packages through the Operation Backpack program. The Hawkeye Area Community Action Program’s Food Reservoir began Operation Backpack in 2006, and since has expanded its reach to more than 75 schools and provided 2,770 food totes weekly each year.
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".
