Brooklyn Park's fire chief is stepping down from a position he has held since 2008, driven out by what some city leaders have described as a "culture of hostility." In a memo sent Thursday to city staffers, City Manager Jay Stroebel cited the "unique dynamic" between Fire Chief Ken Prillaman and some City Council members and said it would benefit the city's "overall culture" to approve Prillaman's resignation at Monday's council meeting.
Hundreds of people dismayed by the death of Justine Damond rallied and march Thursday night in the south Minneapolis where Damond lived and died, their procession growing as people came out of their houses to join it and others gathered in lawns and on sidewalks to watch. Kathy Rappos, who lives in the neighborhood, said she came to march because "Justine is any one of us." "This is not what Minneapolis represents," she said.
Family members of Justine Damond say they hope to bring her back to her native Australia to say goodbye. Damond, 40, died half a world and an ocean away from her home country in an alley near her Minneapolis home Saturday, killed by police gunfire after placing a 911 call to report a possible sexual assault. “All we want to do is bring Justine home to Australia to farewell her in her hometown among family and friends,” her family wrote in a statement e-mailed to the Star Tribune late Wednesday.
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".
