Sven Sundgaard was in Egypt just this past June and connected with his friend and Egyptologist, Walid El-Batouty (also a Deputy Minister of Tourism for Egypt now) who shared news of some exciting research into the great pyramid complex of Giza. “The pyramid of Cheops is the oldest standing monument in the world and it still has lots of secrets," El-Batouty shared. "I mean, we’re still finding there’s more study being done.
GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - Everyone always wants to know about the long-term outlook for whatever season ahead, especially winter in these parts. NOAA created its annual buzz by issuing its official winter forecast for the country Thursday. The question is, how accurate are these forecasts? KARE 11 Meteorologist Sven Sundgaard broke it down for us Friday on Sunrise. First off, climate forecasts are a sketchy business.
GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - The unprecedented Autumn heat wave has ended, but not before making a dent in the weather history books. A major cool front is bringing back typical temperatures and rain showers, but boy was it steamy this weekend. We topped out at 94 degrees Friday and 90 on both Saturday and Sunday. That streak has never before been recorded during Autumn in the Twin Cities. Ever. There have never even been back-to-back, consecutive 90 degree Fall days until this year.
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".
