Over the past few years, an emerging arts community has taken root on St. Paul's East Side. Breakdance groups, Native American dancing and singing troupes, visual artists, hip-hop deejays — all have found ways to express themselves without outside financial help. Until now. A $100,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts is expected to continue and accelerate the growth of several arts organizations serving the increasingly diverse communities of the East Side.
Back when Gary Goodman first got into the used books business, he admits, he knew nothing about running a bookstore. At the time, he was seeking respite from his work as a counselor in a psychiatric unit. Now, 27 years after opening St. Croix Antiquarian Booksellers on Main Street in Stillwater, Goodman is once again seeking a change: retirement. The longtime used and rare bookstore is closing at the end of July.
FAIRDEALING, MO. -- Inside a backwoods mobile home, Rodger Seratt pulled a handwritten recipe from the front pocket of his jeans and went to work on a new batch of bath salts. Wearing no gloves, the burly 61-year-old dipped a kitchen spoon into one bag of white powder after another, weighed the ingredients on a plastic scale, then dumped them into a metal mixing bowl. He was making 80 grams of what he called "White Tusk." A woman in the rusting trailer kept busy tracking orders.
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".
