A skills gap in Wisconsin took center stage Monday during an address in Eau Claire by Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch. As the keynote speaker for the Eau Claire Area Economic Development Corp.’s annual luncheon, Kleefisch said the state has 83,470 open jobs on its website (jobcenterofwisconsin.com) and not enough candidates to fill them.
Mark Hatcher, who played four years of football at UW-Stout, is well aware of the risks associated with competing in the sport. “Playing football, there are injuries almost every day,” he said. “Everyone plays hurt, everyone battles through rehab and injuries throughout their careers. “Seeing this in myself, and also my teammates, and being an avid fan of the sport itself led me to pursue this project.”That “project” is the “Aries,” a football helmet named for the Greek god of war.
One of the state’s top high school softball prospects, Ally Miklesh, may reside in Plover, but her roots in Eau Claire run deep. Ally’s father, Bob Miklesh, played free safety for the UW-Eau Claire football team. Now a dentist, he was named the squad’s MVP in 1991 and earned a spot on the all-conference first team. Her mother, Michelle Miklesh (maiden name McDonald) is an Eau Claire North graduate who was on the dance team at UW-Eau Claire before transferring to UW-Madison.
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".
