The faces of Minnesota’s veterans are changing. As time goes by, they are more likely to be younger, more likely to be female and less likely to be white. Those changes will filter throughout society for years and have an impact on what it means to be a veteran, as well as put new strains on resources and tax dollars. Simple demographics will bring some big changes, as well.
AVON, MINN. — Lured by curiosity and the prospect of metal-on-metal aggression, more than 50 veterans crowded into the shop at Ken’s Custom Iron outside of town on Friday to learn about the ancient craft of blacksmithing. The opportunity had a distinctly military appeal. With the noise of hammer on anvil, the heat, and the roaring flames of the forge, the whole thing had an intoxicating air of danger about it.
Psychiatrist and neurologist Dr. Robert Jeub was a pioneer in using modern techniques to diagnose mental illness and testified at a number of prominent criminal trials. He was so passionate about his profession that he practiced until he was 92. He died Oct. 13 of natural causes at 96. Jeub was a past president of the American Academy of Electroencephalography and Neurophysiology. He had a laboratory at what is now North Memorial Medical Center where he analyzed brain scans from a five-state region.
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".
