MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Attorneys for the Minnesota Legislature and the governor argued in court Monday morning about the legality of the governor’s veto of funding for the House and Senate. The crisis threatened to leave 500 staffers without pay starting as soon as next month. But late Friday both sides agreed to 90 days of temporary funding.
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Among the thousands celebrating Pride this weekend are gay married couples, but just five years ago voters in Minnesota were locked in a heated political battle over a constitutional amendment that would have banned gay marriage. In the end, the amendment was defeated, and just six months later the Minnesota Legislature voted to make gay marriage legal. Two years after that, the U.S. Supreme Court made gay marriage legal in all 50 states.
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Brooklyn Center police say an apparent opioid overdose of two young women last weekend is a reminder of how important it is that witnesses in these cases call 911. A Minnesota State law provides immunity to anyone who calls law enforcement to report an overdose. That what happened Saturday night just before 10 p.m. at the Brooklyn Center Transit Station. The bystanders’ 911 call is credited with saving the young women’s lives.
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".
