Back in 1985, in the pre-Delta days when the hometown airline was Northwest, its bachelor CEO Steve Rothmeier built himself a grand Germanic castle in Eagan. His kingdom was a secluded wooded hilltop set on 2.6 acres — just a few miles from the airline’s headquarters. Rothmeier’s distinctive house was designed for hosting corporate soirees, with a banquet-sized dining room, a soaring great room with a “minstrel’s gallery” for musicians, and space in the garage to park seven cars.
From a century-old Tudor to a 1980s country estate, homes on the lakes scattered around the Twin Cities boast buyer bait such as French-inspired wine rooms, indoor swimming pools, even the privacy of island living. Lakeshore luxury comes at a price, of course. These residences, currently on the market, run from $2.25 million to $11.9 million, the priciest property for sale right now. Cost: $5.5 million.
On her popular website "Cat's House of Fun" (catay.com), Catherine Oakeson referred to herself as "the fat chick." It wasn't a putdown, but a statement of living loud and proud as a large woman. Her site showcased her artistic self portraits — some playful, some sensuous — and messages of body positivity. "She was a size-acceptance pioneer," said Kim Julin of Crystal, a longtime friend. "She didn't let her size stop her. She just got out there and lived life and encouraged everyone to do the same."
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".
