MORRIS, Minn. (WCCO) — It’s safe to say that a Minnesota man’s love for history has forced him to have a few irons in the fire. Arnie Stein is the proud owner of more than 3,000 irons — some dating back to the early 1700s. “I don’t think most folks realize the depth of an iron collection like this,” said Arnie. Or you could say that most folks didn’t even realize there were iron collectors. Instead of postage stamps or postcards, Arnie likes a little metal and a little steam.
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Most kids spend their birthday money or allowance on gifts or treats for themselves. But a Minneapolis girl had other plans. And she was inspired by a story she saw on WCCO where veteran Jason Galvin saved an eagle named Freedom who was stuck in a tree. Galvin shot the twine Freedom was caught on to free the bird. “She definitely likes all kinds of animals, but raptors are near the top,” said mom Heather Whalen. To prove it, Leah set out on a mission of her own.
GRANITE FALLS, Minn. (WCCO) — Every day we lose more and more veterans from the Greatest Generation. They are the men and women who played a major role in the Allied victory over Nazi Germany in World War II. And what started as a past-time to honor those veterans, has turned into a museum that’s become a world-wide attraction in a small Minnesota town. This week in Finding Minnesota, WCCO’s John Lauritsen takes us to Granite Falls to a place where history comes alive.
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".
