HELENA — Cutting-edge science meets the most ancient human art in a new exhibit at the Holter Museum of Art. Montana State University neuroscientist John Miller researched cave art around the world, looking at patterns that repeat and analyzing what that might tell us about the human brain. He compared spirals of dots drawn of a hallucination by a subject using LSD and an 18,00-year-old ivory carving from Siberia. They are much the same.
When Brian D'Ambrosio told people he was writing a book on Montanans in the NFL, people predicted a slim volume. Indeed, how many can you name off the top of your head? What D'Ambrosio found was a rich history that stretched back to the first season of the National Football League. Long before Brock Osweiler (Denver Broncos) and Marc Mariani (free agent so far this season) grabbed headlines, the University of Montana produced Christian Bentz, who played with the Detroit Heralds in 1920.
FORT BENTON — Ten September 4ths have passed since a member of Lt. Col. Nancy Lachapelle's medical team took his own life during an Afghanistan deployment. She remembers the shock of the news. She remembers the sight of a helicopter taking off for Camp Phoenix with his body. She remembers what a "ray of sunshine" Master Sgt. Pat Magnani, 38, was to the team at Operating Base Lightning. He was hard-working, talented, athletic, ever ready with an apropos line from a movie to throw into conversation.
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".
