MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — “Winfield” is a name synonymous with athletics – as in Dave Winfield. Dave and his brother, Steve, grew up in St. Paul. And when Dave wanted to give back with his brother, they founded the Winfield Foundation. It is all part of their commitment to encouraging kids to be active in the inner city. Ten St. Paul high school students were honored this year, and they’ve done much to get here.
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The NBA draft is Thursday, and next year at this time we may be talking about another Minnesotan going in the first round. Gary Trent Jr. went to a prep school in California after playing at Apple Valley High School. He’ll play at Duke this season, and he’s got an NBA veteran as his personal coach — his dad. Gary Trent is working with his son, Gary Trent Jr., as he has been intently for the past 13 years. That’s when the commitment started. “We joke around a lot,” Trent Jr. said.
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Hibbing entered their Class 3A quarterfinal match Thursday as a big underdog, facing the number one seed in St Cloud Tech. But there was some Blue Jacket magic, and one proud uncle understood it all very well. Denny Blumberg was in the stands, supporting his alma mater in the quarterfinals match. He’s 44 years removed from his senior season. When it was over, four players on his team had a chance to play professional ball. He and his catcher signed quickly.
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".
