- It was quite the scene at the Mall of America this weekend as cash rained down upon unsuspecting shoppers. A man dressed as Santa Claus, apparently trying to spread some holiday cheer, dropped a $1,000 in cash over the fourth floor railings. But the mall wasn’t thrilled with his tactics. Tyler Ketz, the man who dressed up in red, says he wanted to do something special for others this holiday season.
- It was a typical early-season basketball tryout last week at Monticello High School--until it wasn't. With quick thinking and not a small amount of bravery, two coaches managed to save the life of one of their players last Tuesday, restarting his heart with the help of a defibrillator the type of which most people walk by on a daily basis. Just minutes into practice, 15-year-old Ryan Monahan fell over--not an uncommon event at such tryouts.
- In Morrison County, the fall deer hunt arrives this year with one giant and troubling unknown. Brisk, a father of four, was shot to death on his family’s private property almost a year ago to the day. He was out deer hunting on a Monday afternoon when his teenage son discovered him. “It makes me feel sad because I miss him so much,” said Frances “Babe” Brisk, Terry’s mom. “I cry every day for him.

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".
