- Last November a mystery like no other unfolded in Menahga, Minn., beginning with a seemingly unexplainable murder-suicide. Why would a gentle, old man kill someone and then turn the gun on himself? Wednesday, without really answering that question, police announced they’ve wrapped up the investigation into the shooting--but the case is far from closed. Instead, it’s grown to include cities and counties in the area, even Wisconsin.
- Last fall, a murder suicide in the small town of Menahga, Minnesota shocked the community. Folks wondered why a grieving old man would kill his financial planner and then shoot himself. The family of one of Mike Callahan’s clients has questioned the financial planner’s motives and the motives of his associate, Vern Erickson, a local doctor in the near-by town of Park Rapids.
- A small-town Minnesota firefighter is dead from an apparent heart attack. Captain Jeff Vollmer died just hours after a training session, where the Mayer Fire Department practiced putting people on stretchers and lifting them up and down stairs. He was only 40 years old. "Never easy when it’s one of your own,” said Fire Chief Rod Maetzold. “His heart quit.”Vollmer’s own colleagues, who were training with him, responded to the call early Tuesday morning.
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".
