MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Great Minnesota Get Together kicks off in less than two weeks. For most vendors, the rush to be ready for the fair happens in the days right before it begins. However, for one vendor, the weeks leading up to the fair are considered crunch time. Sara Hayden is the owner of Sara’s Tipsy Pies. She is in her commercial kitchen preparing for an upcoming order nearly every day. She prepares a couple hundred baked pies during an average week.
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (WCCO) — The FBI is now working to find out who threw an explosive device into Minnesota’s largest mosque. Now local lawmakers like Gov. Mark Dayton are condemning the violence. The governor made that remark outside the Dar Al-Farooq Mosque Sunday morning. He along with other elected leaders gathered to see the damage caused when someone threw an improvised explosive device into the center. There’s been an incredible outpouring of support for the Dar Al-Farooq Islamic Center.
FARIBAULT, Minn. (WCCO) — Thrill-seekers often look to the skies for a little adventure, be it skydiving or hang-gliding. One aviation experience that doesn’t get a lot of attention involves a motorless airplane: gliding. Gliding, or soaring, has been called the best kept secret in flight, and a Minnesota pilot owns one of the state’s only commercial glider operations. The familiar hum of a propeller signals incoming traffic to the Faribault Airport.
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".
