APPLETON - As a reporter who covered schools in the Fox Cities, I occasionally wrote about the impact poverty has on children. Children in need come to school with grumbling tummies, which makes it difficult for them to concentrate on their work. For as wonderful as the Fox Cities are, hunger is an issue here. In fact, some schools offer free breakfast and lunch for all children because the need is so great. RELATED:Learn more about Stock the ShelvesThat's where you come in.
NEENAH - When ThedaCare first announced its plans to explore creating a regional hospital, then-ThedaCare CEO Dean Gruner called it a "long overdue move" that would improve care. "The belief is that, especially if you talk to practicing physicians and nurses, this is long overdue," Gruner said to USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin in February 2016. "If we had everybody in one location, care would really dramatically improve."
WAUSAU - An annual fundraiser to meet hunger needs in the Merrill, Mosinee and Wausau areas is still short of its goal with only a few days left in the campaign. Stock the Shelves donations are split among nine food pantries serving Lincoln and Marathon counties, and the total raised through the first three weeks was about $36,600. The B.A. & Esther Greenheck Foundation has offered to match up to $25,000 in donations, which sets the total goal for the Wausau area at $50,000.
Donations for Stock the Shelves will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the J.J. Keller Foundation, U.S. Venture and the Greater Fox Cities Chapter of Credit Unions
So for every dollar you give, it's like you're actually giving $4! Donate today!
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".
