The calendar might say it's fall, but don't be fooled. Step outside and it's summer in Wisconsin. The forecasts for many cities show temperatures could approach 90 degrees this weekend, despite the changing leaves and noticeably early sunsets. If it does hit 90 this weekend — the first weekend of fall — for some Wisconsin cities it will be the first time all year.
MADISON - Gov. Scott Walker on Wednesday vetoed a plan that required violent sex offenders to be sent to their home counties after they’re released. The plan was added to the state budget in May by the Legislature’s Joint Finance Committee. State Rep. Katrina Shankland of Stevens Point was the only Democrat on the committee to vote in favor of the plan. Shankland wrote the budget motion with state Rep. Mark Born, a Republican from Beaver Dam.
STEVENS POINT - Brigitte Benitez-Vargas didn’t know until high school she was an undocumented immigrant. Her parents brought her to the United States from Mexico when she was 4 years old. They couldn’t afford to come legally, she said. Benitez-Vargas wasn’t aware of her status until she asked her mother about a trip her high school class was taking to Washington, D.C. Her mom told her she couldn’t go. She didn’t have the right identification.
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".
