A savvy predator that plagued ranchers and their livestock a century ago is being inducted into the Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame. Old Snowdrift, the legendary white wolf of Stanford, was first spotted in 1915 and eluded capture for 15 years, gnawing on cattle and sheep all the while. Ranchers "loathed him" but also respected his wily ways. The 2018 Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony & Western Heritage Gathering is Feb. 2-3 at the Best Western Heritage Inn.
For Dan Nelsen of Fort Benton, three months of backache and a lot of pride went into the Frank Lloyd Wright building of Whitefish, which recently became the first viable building by the famous architect to be torn down in 40 years. Nelsen was a 15-year-old whose father, a masonry contractor, informed him he was going to work that summer of 1959 as a hod carrier. "It was some of the hardest work I ever did," he said. "I'm glad my dad had me in construction.
Living on easy street today could mean being unable to survive catastrophe tomorrow. When Hurricane Sandy slammed into the city with wind and flooding, Amy Savage, an assistant biology professor at Rutgers University-Camden and a 1996 C.M. Russell High School graduate, thought the bugs living relatively cushy lives in the parks and forests of New York City (yes, forests!) would do better than those already living on the edge in grassy street medians.
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".
