A pedestrian who was struck by a semi-trailer Wednesday afternoon while crossing the street near the University of Minnesota's East Bank campus died Thursday of his injuries, a Minneapolis police spokesman said. The man, who hasn't yet been publicly idenfitied, was crossing University Avenue SE, near Huron Boulevard, about 2:15 p.m. Wednesday when he was struck and run over by the passing truck, according to police.
Two men are charged with attempted murder in the shooting of a 13-year-old boy in Minneapolis' Little Earth American Indian community. Andrew Townsend and Brandyn Wilson, both 21, are scheduled to make their first court appearance Thursday on one count each of attempted second-degree murder in connection with the Oct. 9 shooting. The victim, Shahntario Cortez Aquash-Rodriguez, remains hospitalized in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the head.
Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo said he is open to revisiting a 2003 agreement between the department and the U.S. Justice Department — dealing with police issues such as use of force, diversity and race relations — amid criticism that few of the promises of reform made then have been kept. Chief among the criticisms was that the department still isn’t doing enough to attract women and minority candidates, to keep pace with the area’s rapidly growing diversity.
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".
