A 19-year-old woman died Monday in an apartment fire in Alexandria, Minn., just 10 days after another fire at a mobile home killed two people in the Douglas County city of 13,500 people. Firefighters were called to the woman's apartment in a fourplex shortly before 5:30 a.m. Two other residents in the apartment escaped by climbing through the windows. They were flown to Regions Hospital in St. Paul to be treated for burns and smoke inhalation.
A priest in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis who was investigated after pornography was found on his computer has been reinstated to limited ministry. The Rev. Jonathan Shelley was never charged with a crime. He was removed from active ministry in 2012 after sexually explicit images were found on a discarded computer that had belonged to Shelley, who served in Mahtomedi at the time. A parishioner who discovered the downloaded images gave the hard drive to the archdiocese in 2004.
Homeless families with children in the St. Paul schools will have a place to sleep despite the rooms at motels that had housed them being usurped by Super Bowl visitors. The families were told last week that their motel housing wouldn't be available for a 10-day period in late January and early February. The St. Paul School District's Project Reach set up a fundraiser last week with a goal of $25,000, and had planned to house a dozen or so families in a school building during the disruption.
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".
