Getting away from the maddening crowds is one of the big attractions that inspired lifelong fisherman Josh Bergan to write his new book, the “Flyfisher’s Guide to Southwest Montana’s Mountain Lakes” (Wilderness Adventures Press, $29.95). “More tourists are coming. And as rivers are getting warmer — I believe, because of climate change — there are more ‘hoot owl’ restrictions,” limiting the hours when fishing is allowed on Montana’s famous rivers.
Eight hundred incoming freshmen students and parents gathered in Montana State University’s ballrooms for a summer orientation session and when an admissions officer asked them to stand and shout out as she named their state, Montana got by far the biggest cheer.There were also pretty big cheers from California, Colorado, Minnesota, Oregon and Washington state.Voices were fewer but enthusiastic for Texas, Wyoming, Florida, Idaho, New Jersey, Kansas, New Hampshire, Illinois, Georgia, the...
BELGRADE — Shalynn Fjeld is normally pretty soft-spoken, but the 18-year-old started screaming when she got the news that she’d won a $10,000 college scholarship from the Horatio Alger Association. Fjeld sat at the Café M, holding her sleepy 2-week-old daughter, Piper, who wore a pink dress and white satin headband. Fjeld graduated from Belgrade High School in June and will enter Montana State University at the end of this month.
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".
