Somebody might want to tell the trees. Doug Hartman’s birch still doesn’t have a clue it’s mid-November, traditionally the time of year when the rake is behind us and the shovel awaits us. “I’ve got a birch here in my yard I’m looking at right now that looks like it’s the middle of summer,” he said while out raking Thursday on Green Bay’s east side. “It’s green. Hasn’t changed at all. They should have been long yellowed and off.
The Bradley children grew up as Packers fans in the heart of Philadelphia Eagles country. Edwin, the oldest at age 12, caught Packer fever in 1965 when Vince Lombardi's team was winning big, and he spread the bug to his sister Pamela and brother Kevin. In 1972, the whole family piled in the Ford station wagon and drove from their town of Coplay to Green Bay — not to see a game but simply to witness two days of training camp.
A reader emailed a couple weeks ago with a question I often think of this time of year: Where can I hike where hunting is not allowed? Most of Wisconsin's public lands are open to hunting, including state parks since 2012. Users can and do share the trail — I've worn bright colors and hiked through areas open to hunting plenty of times with no problems — but I understand people's hesitation to do so, especially during the popular gun deer hunt, Nov. 18-26 this year.
This is such a conundrum -> More people getting into nature is good overall, but when too many people do at specific places (and too many LNT uneducated people do), it puts a lot of pressure on wild places. https://t.co/ZwFDOQFHpN
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".
