For the past month the Student Association has held a campaign to get people to vote on a referendum for more segregated fees to renovate the Student Union. If you’ve been walking around the Union in the past month, you may have noticed graphics band aids on different parts of the interior. The band aids come with a little description on problems with that area and how much it costs to fix. It’s like a museum of damage and repair costs.
Last weekend, I took a trip to the Fox Bay theater and saw “Blade Runner 2049”. It’s a science fiction film starring Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, and directed by Denis Villenueve. I think it was a solid film. Considering that it was a sequel to an older movie, it kept true to the science fiction and cyberpunk themes of the last one. A plus is that it brings in new ideas and makes a story of its own instead of sticking to the format of its predecessor.
Campus safety has been a question for a couple weeks now. UWM offers services like BOSS, emergency phones on campus and the SAFEWALK program. Safewalkers offer people escorts around campus and the surrounding neighborhood during every night of the week. But who are the safewalkers? How was their program started? Sergeant Heather Maus is currently in charge of the Safewalk program at UWM. She says that they serve as the eyes and ears of the police department on campus.
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".
