Patina Park, executive director of the Minnesota Indian Women's Resource Center, says you need to go over to All My Relations Gallery in Minneapolis to see "Bring Her Home: Stolen Daughters of Turtle Island." The art calls attention to the many murdered or missing indigenous women, and the families still waiting for their return. On view through April 20. Duluth theater artist Kirsten Hambleton highly recommends seeing Wise Fool Theater's production of "Treasure Island" before it closes March 18.
Anger is prevalent these days on Twitter, on the road and even from the President. Where is this uptick in anger coming from? Yvette Erasmus and Resmaa Menakem discussed anger with host Marianne Combs — what it is, where it comes from, and when it can be used for good. They also discussed why some people are judged more harshly for displaying their anger than are others. To listen to their conversation, click the audio player above.
Penumbra Theatre Company in St. Paul recently asked Minnesotans to share their experiences of life in America. They then took twelve finalists and helped them to develop their work for the stage. The results paint a vibrant picture of the hopes and struggles of an increasingly diverse country called, "My America." MPR sponsored the program. Using the audio player above you can hear the work of three contributors, plus a discussion with the creators of the program.
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".
