Already, it's the most talked-about artwork in town.The gleaming, three-ton sculpture that was installed on the Mayo Civic Center plaza this week has been in the works for more than three years. It went through an elaborate public selection process, helped along by the Minnesota State Arts Board. Ninety-three artists applied.The project was thoroughly discussed and has been eagerly awaited since then. Now that it's here, the predictable firestorm on Facebook and other social media has begun.
If your business people are coming to you and saying, "Your tax increase is forcing me out," imagine what it is doing to residents in this community who don't make a lot of money. Yes, it is forcing us out.I was shocked when I opened the tax statement and saw the 9.1 percent increase and thought what on earth is this for anyway. My second thought was, I can't pay this. I'm forced out.The grand design for Rochester's downtown takes precedence over the residents, of course.
Mozart’s “The Marriage of Figaro” could hardly be more relevant than it is now, in the era of Harvey Weinstein and Roy Moore.Watching the Minnesota Opera’s splendid new production of “Figaro,” which opened last weekend at the Ordway Center in St. Paul and closes with performances tonight and Sunday, it’s impossible not to wonder at how long powerful men have harassed women, and hear the echoes in current events from Hollywood to Washington.In Mozart’s day, it was the “droit du seigneur”; in...
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
