“Oh, it was pretty tough,” laughs 80-year-old Dick Collen when asked about the condition in which he first found the Allis Chalmers B, now split in half in his garage. When he hauled it home, Collen estimates the tractor had been sitting near a road for 20 years. Its manifold was rusted out, its wheels flattened and buried eight inches into the surrounding soil. But Collen was drawn to the Allis Chalmers like no other tractor.
Minneapolis police say 20-year-old Ria Patel died early Sunday morning. Patel was a passenger in a car that slammed into a stoplight pole just north of I-35W.

He says police know the identity of the driver and urged him to turn himself in.
HOUSTON, Texas – A week after Hurricane Harvey exacted its wrath, Shameka Carter decided Houston needed a hug. So, this weekend, she gave it one. Both Friday and Saturday Carter stood near the entrance of the Summerwood H-E-B grocery store, palms up, arms extended, as Texan after Texan retreated into the comfort of her warm embrace. “So many people need it,” Carter said. “The hurricane, it just devastated a lot of lives.”Carter covered her eyes with a cloth while administering her Harvey hugs.
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".
