Assembly Republicans just revealed their budget proposal for K-12 education— an alternative to Governor Walker's Senate-backed budget proposal which would increase funding by $649 million. The Assembly's goal is for fairer spending for students. It was almost 25 years ago that a law limiting property tax levies locked school districts into controlling what they spend. Assembly Republicans say revenues have not kept pace with costs, especially in districts that serve lower-income students.
The death of a Green Bay homeless man yesterday has area advocates asking for the public's help to provide consistent year-round shelter for those struggling. 55-year-old Thomas Worth was sleeping in a dumpster during a rainstorm Tuesday night. He died from injuries he received after a garbage truck emptied that dumpster the next morning. Advocates are hoping his death will be the push the public needs to get involved in helping the homeless.
Wednesday, Marinette Marine celebrated the start of a $500 million project: The USS St. Louis. The St. Louis is officially one of seven ships being worked on right now at the Midwest's only naval shipyard. Wednesday's "Laying of the Keel" ceremony represents the St. Louis coming to life, as the ship's keel is considered the backbone of the structure. The Navy last saw a USS St. Louis in 1992. This future ship with the same name will be much different than that amphibious cargo ship.
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".
