Cable TV is expensive, and despite the hundreds of channels you can access, chances are you watch only a fraction of them regularly. But with several new entries into the streaming market in the past couple years, cord-cutters now have the chance to ditch their cable package. So do online TV services offer a better deal than their cable counterparts? The Tip Jar takes a look. These are the cheapest TV/internet bundle packages I found from Comcast and CenturyLink, based on Minneapolis prices.
A mother has been charged after authorities say she was four times over the legal driving limit while her infant child was in the back seat. The sheriff’s office in Cass County, North Dakota, says 36-year-old Amber Douglas, of Fargo, was stopped north of Horace after a driver noticed a vehicle “driving all over the road.”Douglas was behind the wheel and came to a stop at an intersection before police arrived.
News emerged this past week that former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura doesn’t like his plaque in the State Capitol. His main complaint, MPR reported, is the use of a motto attributed to him saying: “Win if you can, lose if you must, but always cheat,” which Ventura denies ever saying. It appears the phrase dates back to his wrestling days, though Ventura attributes that to a wrestling colleague of his, Ken Patera.
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".
