MILWAUKEE -- During a checkup, doctors now have something else to check out -- a database. It's called the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) and it's in place to detect improper use of opiates. The PDMP has been in place since 2013. The enhanced version launched one month ago. It’s the result of legislation passed to combat Wisconsin's growing opioid epidemic. The law now requires physicians and pharmacists to check the database before prescribing or filling the drugs.
MILWAUKEE — The City of Milwaukee came together to search for 27-year-old Kelly Dwyer after she disappeared in October of 2013. One of the lead volunteers said he was relieved Monday, May 8th to learn charges have now been charged against Kris Zocco for Dwyer’s death. He said the homicide charges against Zocco bring some peace to Dwyer’s family.
MILWAUKEE — He moved to Milwaukee just days ago, and already, he’s become the victim of crime. All four wheels were stolen off of his brand new vehicle, and police say this is a growing problem. Police say wheel thefts are happening more now than ever before, and Allan Rivera became a victim just as he was getting settled in Milwaukee. “I think the neighborhood is great,” Rivera said. So much so, that Rivera, an Illinois native, decided to move to Milwaukee’s Riverwest neighborhood.
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".
