On this date in 1984, the high temperature in Fargo-Moorhead was 88 degrees. Two days later, the high was 45. To our west, Bismarck cooled from a high of 89 on Sept. 21 to a high of 41 on Sept. 23. More remarkable, the Bismarck area was treated to a 3½-inch snowfall on the 23rd. This was a Friday-Saturday-Sunday in 1984 if that helps to sharpen any memories.Measurable September snowfall (more than just flurries) in Fargo-Moorhead is quite rare.
Globally averaged, the air has warmed. But the daily ups and downs of weather still happen. Although the Atlantic Basin is having a rough hurricane season, there is nothing about any of these storms that would have been impossible 100 years ago.Real signs of global warming can be found, but not in individual storms. Rather, climate change can be seen in weather trends.
Deciduous plants reach a certain threshold in the fall at which the nights are so long that cells in the interface between the leaf and the stem stop dividing and growing as they did during summer. This creates a growing layer of essentially non-functional cells that can no longer transport minerals from the tree roots to the leaves. Likewise, carbohydrates are no longer passed from the leaves back into the tree.This process happens at the same time every year and has nothing to do with weather.
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".
