Judging by all the signs around town, from yard signs to the electronic bill board and more, the Asset campaign is in full swing. In case you’ve missed it, assets are the positive building blocks that help young people grow into healthy, contributing adults. Assets include internal qualities like commitment to learning and social competencies that can grow inside each of us with support from caring adults.
When I came back to Faribault after my vacation, I saw a lot of new advertising.I saw new messages on posters in public buildings and businesses. I saw the same messages on a bench downtown and on lawn signs. I even saw those messages on the electronic billboard by the highway and on the back of a bus. What messages? Not what you might think: not messages selling something or protesting something or criticizing someone.
For the past several years, there has been a lot of media attention to the opiate crisis, nationally, in Minnesota and even in our own Rice County community. The FDN story from July 13 focused on the amounts of opiate drugs being prescribed.Opiates are what we think of as “painkillers”... medicines to help people deal with pain. For everything from removing wisdom teeth, to broken bones, surgeries, cancer and other chronic illnesses, opiate drugs are used to relieve pain.
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".
