MILWAUKEE -- Promise of a safer summer -- that's the goal of a coalition of groups who are forming a new initiative. They're focusing on four of Milwaukee's most challenged areas. The initiative is called "Promise Zones." The meet and greet was held in Garden Homes Park Friday, June 23rd and it was was packed with agencies that have bought into the program -- and people who support it. The event takes place in an area with a past that many would like to see recaptured.
MILWAUKEE -- A Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) bus driver says he loves his job. That would explain why he's stayed there for 34 years, but life for him is about to change. His name is Mark Davis, and at the end of his shift Thursday, June 15th, he will be a "former" MCTS bus driver. A group gathered to wait for Davis' bus at the Germantown Walmart location to surprise him. "It's just overwhelming. I didn't know they were going to make it," Davis said.
MILWAUKEE -- A gunman injured at least five people during a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia Wednesday, June 14th. There are still a lot of unanswered questions concerning the shooter. As you can imagine, federal agents are vigorously searching for answers. We know few things about the shooter: James T. Hodgkinson. He was 66 years old and from Illinois -- a long way from Alexandria. Hodgkinson had political interest. He was at an "Occupy St. Louis" event in December of 2011.
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".
