The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources on Thursday announced that the state has approved changing the name of Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis to Bde Maka Ska, its original Dakota name. The department’s decision follows resolutions passed by the Hennepin County Board and the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board. “The DNR respects the role of elected county boards in determining name changes for geographic features,” Commissioner Tom Landwehr said in a news release.
Officials with the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District are warning Orono that the city will have to pay next time it fails to follow a joint plan to preserve Big Island on Lake Minnetonka. In a letter to Orono Mayor Dennis Walsh and the City Council, the watershed district criticized the city for trimming 200 tree limbs last summer on the island's protected natural area. The city needs to notify the district before it attempts improvements, said District President Sherry Davis White.
Minnesota isn’t usually considered a problem area for landslides and mudslides. But in the past several years, the state has seen several devastating examples of each:• Two children killed in a 2013 landslide during a field trip at Lilydale Regional Park in St. Paul. • The collapse of a slope on West River Parkway in Minneapolis in 2014 that cost millions of dollars to repair. • Houses destroyed along Purgatory Creek in Eden Prairie and along the Minnesota River in Henderson, Minn.
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".
