MINNEAPOLIS - Some on social media are blasting Metro Transit after it was announced earlier this week that service on the light rail will be limited on Super Bowl Sunday. On the day of the game, the Green Line west of Stadium Village and the Blue Line north of the Mall of America will require airport-like screening to board the rail, a $30 gameday fare and a ticket to the Super Bowl. You read that right. A ticket to Super Bowl LII.
MINNEAPOLIS – The federal judge who chaired a board to decide what John F. Kennedy assassination documents to redact and release to the public says—spoiler alert—the lone gunman theory is the only one that could be proven in court. Last week, the government released 2,800 files relating to the assassination of JFK, but some 200 files still remain secret. President Trump announced on Twitter that the remaining files will be released once certain names and addresses are redacted.
HOPKINS, Minn. -- As the lawsuits pile up against Equifax for exposing nearly half the country's social security numbers, you’re likely not the only one wondering, "Who has my social security number?" For some, a simple free check of your credit history at www.annualcreditreport.com is enough, but for others, it’s not. Here is one way to ensure no one accesses your credit information except you.
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".
