- A federal judge will decide whether a lawsuit filed by a group of college athletes can be certified as a class action lawsuit. It's a Title IX lawsuit brought by six female athletes at St. Cloud State University after their sports teams were cut to save money. Women from St. Cloud State's tennis and nordic skiing teams were on hand to hear their case argued before a federal judge, their attorneys arguing why the case should move from individual lawsuits to a class action lawsuit.
- An Irish pub in downtown Minneapolis has a mystery they hope you can help solve. While sweeping up, workers at O’Donovan’s Irish Pub found two old photos inside an old plastic case. The photos are both portraits: one of a young woman, the other of a young man wearing a military uniform. Maybe he was off to war, a new romance, or newly married. It’s hard to say but their story has a lot of people curious.
- 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.
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".
