- History was made at MSP International Airport Wednesday, as a Boeing-747 landed in the Twin Cities for the last time. The giant jumbo jets are retiring and Delta is hosting a farewell tour, making stops in Detroit, Seattle, Atlanta and finally, Minneapolis. The flight landed early Wednesday afternoon, drawing aviation buffs from all walks of life for a sendoff fit for a queen. On the highest levels of the airport parking garage, all eyes were on something far higher.
- Super Bowl 52 is now 52 days away, and each day the excitement is building - especially if you are a student at North High School in Minneapolis. On Wednesday, the Minneapolis North Polars football team and their coach got a very special surprise from the NFL. “I thought we were getting new equipment. I thought we were just going to get more equipment and shirts or something,” one student said. The team got their shirts, and they also met the Vikings cheerleaders and Viktor the Viking.
- It could be Friday or later before a big section of I-694 reopens in Oakdale, Minn., after a water main break Sunday opened a large hole beneath the roadway. Crews are classifying the problem as a “washout” rather than a “sinkhole,” but say fixing it is both a challenge and a priority due to an estimated 87,000 cars that use the highway every day. “We will work around the clock until this is repaired,” said MnDOT's Director of Communications Kevin Gutknecht.
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".
