It was the kind of call every police officer dreads: a baby, unresponsive and not breathing. Minneapolis officer Dante Dean was confronted with such a situation when, while on patrol July 12, he was rerouted to a report of "unknown trouble" at a house near Lake Nokomis. When he arrived, he found a woman hovering frantically over an infant and calling for help. The 1-year-old baby was lying still on a table, and, with his fingers, Dean started compressions on its tiny chest.
No, it’s not happening again. Downtown Minneapolis residents and business owners looking up at the sky early Friday saw an unfamiliar sight — a low-flying helicopter buzzing past several skyscrapers and U.S. Bank Stadium. The reason: A television crew was filming a commercial for Super Bowl LII near U.S. Bank Stadium. Images of the chopper, rigged with a gyro-stabilized camera and hovering over the IDS Center, began popping up on Twitter later in the morning.
Thousands of boisterous, banner-waving devotees are expected to fill Twin Cities streets when Super Bowl LII comes to town in February. Some might even stay for the game. “Everybody knows there’s going to be protests — they know what they’re walking into here in the Twin Cities,” said Sam Sanchez. His group, Twin Cities Coalition for Justice 4 Jamar, and others have promised a week of “resistance” leading up to the Feb. 4 game.
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".
