- For many of us here in Minnesota, summertime is often filled with trips to the lake. But as we get older, lake fun becomes a little more challenging. A senior care center in Burnsville, however, says it's worth the planning to make a day at the cabin every year a reality for its elderly residents. There are no fast movers in this group, but that's okay with everyone--a day at Camp Friendship is worth the wait.
- Caught in the explosion, Minnehaha Academy Accountant Joel Maart experienced a terrifying, surreal moment when a portion of the building blew up. “It felt like somebody pushed you down, like you got pushed down to the ground pretty good,” Maart said. “There's just dust, stuff flying everywhere…stuff hanging from the ceilings, light fixtures and all that.”Maart was in the office area talking to a colleague when the disaster started to unfold.
- Two cases of Measles in Minnesota may not sound like much to worry about, but there's a big question mark in this investigation: What is the source? Without knowing that, it's hard to know how many more cases could develop. While two children are being treated, public health workers are on the phone notifying anyone who may have been exposed to the highly contagious disease.
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".
