Minneapolis is loaded with public art. Now there are maps to help people find it. The city and the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board on Thursday launched new online interactive tours of 300 pieces of publicly accessible artwork across the city. The idea is to help locals and visitors easily explore artworks by car, bike or on foot. "It's really important the public understands what the artworks are really about," said Mary Altman, the city's public arts administrator.
Golfers are using a new strategy to try to save Hiawatha Golf Club: noting its significance to black golfers as one of the first Minneapolis courses that welcomed African-Americans. About 100 people turned out Tuesday evening to rally against the Minneapolis Park Board’s decision to reduce the groundwater pumping that keeps the golf course dry, a move that would close the course at the end of the 2019 season.
The days of playing golf at the Hiawatha Golf Club will soon be a thing of the past. The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board on Wednesday voted 6-3 to reduce groundwater pumping in line with a recommendation from the state Department of Natural Resources. The decision to pump less groundwater into Lake Hiawatha also means the golf course will close permanently at the end of the 2019 season. The board's decision came after months of debate about the fate of the 18-hole course.
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".
