- In the aftermath of the bombing of Dar Al-Farooq Islamic Center in Bloomington, Minnesota, there are moments of tremendous hope. “I wanted to show our face to show people care about you and you are part of the community,” said Dawn Strommen, a member of Plymouth Lutheran Church. Strommen stopped by the mosque with a check to help rebuild the center. Others brought flowers, and all offered solidarity. “We have compassion and we learn to know each other,” she said. “Why create fear?
- The Minnehaha Academy incident is not the first major gas explosion in Minnesota, and it likely won't be the last. More than 177 million Americans use natural gas in their homes, according to the American Gas Association. In Minnesota, in the last 20 years, most natural gas explosions have been caused by some kind of human error, but several high profile cases also remain unsolved. Natural gas explosions occur roughly every other day in the U.S. and Minnesota has had some memorable ones.
- Mark Stutrud, the President and Founder of Summit Brewery in St. Paul, has been in the beer game for 31 years. "Sadly I have to say that I'm surrounded by amateurs," he said. “You have substandard products and you have customers who pay for their learning curve." For decades, it was the big three in Minnesota: Schmidt, Hamm's, and Grainbelt.
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".
