When Dave Anderson found out that he was going to be inducted into the Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame this year, he described his reaction as being "a little surprised, I guess." Anderson, of rural Fort Dodge, was one of 119 4-H'ers who was inducted into the 4-H Hall of Fame on Sunday at the Iowa State Fair. He was inducted because of his work as an archery instructor for Webster County 4-H'ers, something he has done since 2006.
For the trucking industry, automation has helped to make the jobs of truckers as they're on the road safer as it protects them from traffic issues. And automation continues to evolve for the trucking industry, according to Dale Decker, executive vice president of Decker Truck Line Inc. in Fort Dodge. Decker said most people aren't even aware that automation exists. "We've been a part of it without knowing," he said, adding that most common methods of automation are part of trucker's daily lives.
"It gets busier with election years," he said. "We get called a lot by Secret Service to come assist them with their dignitaries that they might have." "We'll entertain calls for departments and we'll try to assist them depending on the availability of the officer," Pals said. "He can't be at home 24 hours a day, seven days a week. He also has patrol time to cover. But we will do whatever we can to accommodate another department."
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".
