MILWAUKEE -- More than 150 Girl Scouts from Milwaukee Public Schools played softball in the shadows of Miller Park on Wednesday, July 26th. But this tournament wasn't really about winning. The Girl Scouts were ready to play in the 17th annual "Girls of Summer" tournament at Helfaer Field. They had been practicing and were ready for some friendly competition. "I know that I can hit well and I can catch. I have been practicing catching," said Tamera Wright, seventh grader.
MILWAUKEE -- Educators gearing up for the 2017-2018 school year came together Monday, July 24th to discuss how to solve problems dealing with race and culture. A group dance got the energy level up, and created a positive mood on a Monday morning as more than 100 Milwaukee principals and instructional leaders prepared to take on a tough topic: Respecting race and culture. "This is life and death for the children of Milwaukee," said Andy Vitrano, Schools that Can director of partnerships.
MILWAUKEE -- Three turtles hit by cars in the Milwaukee area are lucky to be alive. They are in the care of the experts at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center at the Wisconsin Humane Society. One painted turtle would not have survived without WHS Wildlife Director, Scott Diehl. The turtle's shell is held together by epoxy glue and hooks. Diehl said, "they're really like bra hooks." Same goes for one snapping turtle who needed surgery and a feeding tube.
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".
