There is a severe need for foster care homes in the UP, that's according to the Department of Health and Human Services. They held a seminar to show people what is needed to be able to fill that need. "In the US every two minutes, a child enters foster care," UP Family Solutions licensing specialist Ashley Weber said. "So you combine that with the number of foster families in Marquette County or across the up and understandably we have a huge lack and a huge need for foster parents."
The problem of garbage spilling out of garages and tossed into the woods is an obvious concern for the people of Marquette County. Police can write tickets and fine offenders, but with no one to blame, and limited resources to pick up after everyone, trash can accumulate over time. Even the smallest amount of blight can bring down the reputation of an otherwise nice neighborhood.
Telemarketer Safety Publications Inc. has agreed to cease operations in Illinois after the state's attorney general alleged the firm misled donors to raise millions of dollars on behalf of war-torn veterans and other charitable causes. Safety co-founder Arthur Olivera also signed a lifetime ban from raising charity funds in Illinois, while Safety's other co-founder Adam Herdman agreed to a three-year prohibition.
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".
