"Golden eagles are definitely here. They’re out.” If Scott Mehus knows what he is talking about – and he does – his words bode well for the annual golden eagle survey Saturday in Minnesota and elsewhere in the Midwest. Mehus is education director at the National Eagle Center in Wabasha. He started the survey 14 years ago. Another robust group of almost 200 volunteer, trained observers will be out this weekend. Mehus led his usual training sessions for new participants, something he relishes.
James Lunning “Walker” from Minneapolis who completed Triple Crown of hiking (Appalachian, Pacific Crest and Continental Divide trails)I finished the last bit of the Pacific Crest Trail in February, and made it to the West Coast, completing my objective to go coast to coast. Then I walked through the desert of the Southwest and spent time hanging out and rock climbing in Utah. I thru-hiked the Continental Divide Trail, and ended up hitchhiking home shortly after I finished in September.
The increased number of beefy-tired bikes rolling around is reflected on the Minnesota winter calendar: Fatbike rides and races abound, making it a moment to experience the fun. (Star Tribune beginner’s guide here.) Sales hit nearly $75 million in the United States in 2016, according to The NPD Group, which tracks U.S. retail bike sale – that is eight times the number in 2013. Penn Cycle’s fatbike race series has tracked with the bike’s wild popularity.
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".
