ST. PAUL, Minn. - An overnight house fire Thursday has claimed the life of a woman on St. Paul's east side. Fire crews were dispatched to the 1800 block of LaCrosse Avenue around 1:45 a.m. after a neighbor was awakened by his barking dog and noticed a nearby home was on fire. Upon arrival firefighters saw flames leaping from the windows on two sides of the structure. During their attack on the flames firefighters found the body of a resident who was unconscious and not breathing.
CAMBRIDGE, Minn. - An Isanti County Deputy says he was simply doing his job, but three county residents have a different take, saying they might not be alive if it wasn't for Alex Schlangen. "He is the beneficiary of my will," laughed Shorty Nelson as she reflected on the unexpected arrival of Schlangen in her life.
We knew it was coming, but that didn't prevent a storm system that rolled into Minnesota Monday and early Tuesday from hitting residents like a sock in the jaw. Some areas of the state got up to a foot of snow (Roosevelt-11 inches) , while others, including the Twin Cities, got rain that morphed into snow that iced streets and highways from west to east. The conditions were reflected in the morning commute, slowed to a crawl by dozens of crashes and spinouts.
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".
