ZIMMERMAN, Minn. – Mary Knack is not your average cowgirl. The 17-year-old from Elk River owns two businesses, an Arabian horse—named Flynn, and a Ford F-150 truck. She also works at the Brooklyn Park Subway and finds time for a full load of high school classes. “It’s hard to find the time for everything these days,” said Knack. At the age of 13, she created Equine Essentials, providing hand-braided, custom halters, straps, reins and ropes for horse riding, which she now sells around the world.
LINDSTROM, Minn. -- Valkommen till Lindstrom. That’s the Swedish message painted on the city’s water tower, which translates to “Welcome to Lindstrom”. The folks in this Chisago County town of about 4,000 people have taken more than the Swedish language to heart. They’re taking the Scandanavian ethic of self-reliance too. “By 2025, we think we can get to 100 percent, locally generated power in Chisago County,” said Jeremy Kalin, CEO of Eutactics, a Twin Cities renewable energy company.
HASTINGS, Minn. – They started at dawn on Memorial Day: 12 men and women, a flag and a mission. Instead of a parade, former Army Ranger Tom Wright organized the March For Them, a 28-mile walk to honor Americans who made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of the United States. The march followed the banks of the Mississippi River from Red Wing to Hastings. “The meaning (of Memorial Day) has certainly got lost; to hit that cabin and hit that sale. I think that's OK.
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".
