VILLAGE OF MAINE - The village of Maine will get some extra state cash to help cover the costs of absorbing Brokaw. Starting with the 2018-19 fiscal year, Maine will receive $583,000 annually for five years to help offset some of the liabilities it, along with the town of Texas, will take on when Brokaw dissolves. The money was added to the state's two-year budget by the Joint Finance Committee earlier this month. Gov. Scott Walker signed the budget Thursday.
TOWN OF EASTON - Environmental activists and three central Wisconsin mayors are sounding the alarm about a proposed bill that could pave the way for sulfide mines in Wisconsin, saying such operations could expose waterways to a dangerous cocktail of sulfuric acid and heavy metals like mercury and lead. One area at risk, they argue, is a site near Marathon County's Eau Claire Dells where a company called Aquila Resources has drilled in the past, in search of gold.
WESTON - A technology repair business. A battery that recharges itself using magnets and a heat generator. A bracelet company that gives a portion of its profits to the charity of the buyer's choice. These are just some of the ideas brewing at this year's Young Entrepreneurs Academy, a program that takes middle and high school students out of the classroom and provides them with real-world business knowledge.
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".
