The small lot sat empty on Chisholm's main street for decades, a wooden fence hiding the 25-by-100-foot space between the taller brick walls of downtown buildings. Now, that space on W. Lake Street is a well-appointed urban "pocket park," with a stamped and stained concrete floor, cagelike baskets of taconite mining rock holding up a series of benches, an artsy bike rack, art panels, garden plantings, a small stage for music and free Wi-Fi.
The paved portion of Duluth's famed Lakewalk in Canal Park is clear and open again after Lake Superior storm waves buried it with dirt, rock and debris in late October. A hulking chunk of sidewalk that washed out near the Great Lakes Aquarium has been leveled and paved, clearing the route for people to walk to Bayfront Park for the upcoming Bentleyville holiday light display. Farther up the shore, officials expect to open a road at Brighton Beach soon, after patching it with temporary pavement.
– Rushed into the emergency room, the overdose patients are still reeling just minutes after being revived from the brink of death with a shot of opioid antidote. Typically, doctors monitor them for a few hours. They might offer more antidote along with phone numbers and pamphlets for treatment options. Then, often, patients are simply sent home, where their intense cravings can lead to fatal relapses in the days or weeks they might wait to get more help.
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".
