MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Nearly every day, weather permitting, Ben Cotter grabs his ukulele and puts on a show. A Camphill concert if you will. “It’s an early Christmas gift from my dad. Buddy Guy is one of my favorites,” said Ben. It’s a familiar song and dance at one of the more unique places you’ll find, anywhere. “This place in Minnesota, it’s quite rare,” said Bill Briggs, administrator at Camphill Village. About 50 people call Camphill Village home.
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (WCCO) — As cities grow and change, so do their demographics. And some police departments are trying to change along with them. Just over a year ago, Bloomington, St. Louis Park and other agencies joined forces with Hennepin Technical College to create “Pathways to Policing.”The idea is to get more people of color in law enforcement as a way to help both cops and communities. “It’s a lot of fun but I have to admit I got a little car sick yesterday,” said Abigail Smith.
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Summer X Games are underway at U.S. Bank Stadium, but it’s not just the athletes who are giving it their all this weekend. Fans also have the chance to see what they’re capable of. “This is a wind tunnel,” Bryse Yonts, of Fruit of the Loom, said. “It is 55 feet long and it has winds that get up to 65 miles per hour.”Operated by a 100 horsepower motor, Fruit of the Loom’s wind tunnel is designed to blow you away — it was once used in the movie Twister.
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".
