MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The greatest success story out of the University of Minnesota’s Horticulture Science Program is rooted in a single apple tree. “This tree is actually the oldest Honeycrisp tree in existence in the world,” said horticulture science professor Jim Luby, who helps oversee the development of new apple varieties. The Honeycrisp apple’s broad appeal has become an important part of the research. “Anything new that we want to put out at least has to have this kind of crunch,” Luby said.
TONKA BAY, Minn. (WCCO) — A retail shop in Tonka Bay, Minnesota, isn’t typically a first stop in hurricane recovery but Chrissy Farley is looking to change that. Farley is holding a donation drive at Gathered Goods Company to collect basic necessities which will be shipped to the island of St. Thomas. The drive started Thursday afternoon and donations of toothpaste, deodorant, diapers, aspirin, and other toiletries have already come in.
Lisa Murphy and Courtney Darst visit the park often but they are more focused on what’s in the water. “We’re trying to fish for pink salmon and they’re spawning,” said Murphy, who fly fishes on the North Shore. “We have salmon coming up to here and, above this, we also have trout, so there are many options for catching different species. It’s perfect here.”From spring through fall, these ladies try to reel in a wide variety of sport fish, a conquest made more challenging on a 9-foot fly rod.
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".
