MINNEAPOLIS -- Menthol cigarettes are the newest battle line in the Minneapolis tobacco wars. City Council member Cam Gordon, who spearheaded the move against fruit flavored smokes two years ago,has proposed relegating menthol products to tobacco stores that are off limits to minors. "This makes absolutely no sense to me," Edward Elias, who owns Camden Grocery and Tobacco on the city's north side and Gold Medal Market and Deli in downtown Minneapolis, told KARE.
MINNEAPOLIS -- President Trump is in Hamburg, Germany for his first G20 economic summit, but most of the attention is focused on his first face-to-face meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. There are some issues that carry over from the Obama years, including Russia's involvement in Syria and incursions into Ukraine. And then there's the elephant in the room, Russia's meddling in US election via cyber attacks and misinformation campaigns.
MINNEAPOLIS -- Both Children's Hospitals and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota have strong incentives to settle their contract dispute and agree on a set of reimbursement rates both can live with, according to a leading expert on health markets. "Both sides have incentives to settle, and both sides have incentives to try negotiate the best bargain they can get," Allan Baumgarten told KARE.
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".
