Milo Fleming's personality is as punchy as his cooking. The St. Paul eighth-grader is one of a dozen kids ages 11-14 who were selected from across the country for the first season of Top Chef Jr., a spin-off of Bravo's hit reality cooking competition. At 13 years old, Fleming is already a seasoned chef who makes dinner for his family at least three nights a week, and has helped with prep work at Tilia, one of Minneapolis' most sophisticated restaurants.
Take as long as you need to examine that photo. According to a Duluth Police Department K-9 officer, it's not even photoshopped. It appears that this poor raccoon, for unknown reasons, wanted to get down into the city's sewer. But he really underestimated the size of his rear and ended up in this humiliating situation. According to police, an officer got a call about this critter earlier this week and came to the rescue. Luckily, officers were able to set the raccoon free.
What would you name a newly discovered type of northern lights? Well, scientists thought Steve was a good fit. So in addition to your regular aurora borealis, you can now go searching for Steve. According to Space.com and MLive.com, it's kind of like a normal aurora but contained to a streak or arch. And apparently scientists don't really know what it is so they're just calling it Steve. Yes, just like in the DreamWorks movie, Over the Hedge. Space.com says Steve isn't actually new.
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".
