- "Inside Out" is one of the highest grossing animated movies of all time, but a local child development expert claims Disney stole her idea. The movie features a cast of color-coded characters that represent the range of a child's emotions. But a Minnesota parenting expert said that concept is strikingly similar to one she's been developing for years. Denise Daniels said she created a pilot for a show called "The Moodsters" in 2007 to help kids understand their emotions.
- For most kids, birthdays are a chance to see what they can get, but a 9-year-old in St. Paul has been using his birthdays to see how much he can give instead. On Saturday, he’ll be presenting a check for $1,200 to the St. Paul Police canine unit for a K-9 to get a bullet-proof vest. “Some dogs have vests and some dogs didn't and I didn't think that was fair,” Ethan said. It all started when he was turning just 4 years old.
- Pamplona, Spain, may have the Running of the Bulls, but a Twin Cities race track has its own popular tradition. This is the fourth year of the Running of the Bulldogs at Canterbury Park, and 48 dogs took part in the canine competition to see which would come out on top. There's nothing in the playbook for Vikings Offensive Coordinator Pat Shurmur and his wife Jennifer to help their five-year-old bulldog Penny win the Super Bowl of dog races. "I don't know if she's even going to run.
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".
