There are some things in the world of sports that come around every once in a while that leave you in awe. A high school football team that hasn’t lost a game since 2012 would qualify. The Post-Crescent has chronicled the amazing run of the Kimberly Papermakers over the past five seasons as they’ve tallied 69 consecutive wins, going for No. 70 on Friday afternoon when they meet Sun Prairie for the WIAA Division 1 state championship at Madison’s Camp Randall Stadium.
A late push is needed to get contributions to the annual Stock the Shelves campaign to a level that would initiate three substantial matching grants. The clock is ticking, and we need your help in the coming few days. I wrote about the campaign and the community’s tradition of generosity on Sunday. I’m back today with an update on the status of the campaign and a plea for some last-minute assistance.
As we begin to inch deeper into the holiday season — and the chill in the air certainly suggests that time is near — there will be ample reminders of the goodness that’s in the Fox Cities. We’ll enjoy the parades and the lights and decorations, we’ll savor the Christmas performances at schools or the Lawrence Chapel or the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center, and we’ll prepare for family gatherings and the feasts that come with it.
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".
