Mike Heilmann went more than four decades without talking about his service in the U.S. Coast Guard. It wasn’t as though his family didn’t care; in fact, his wife and children would ask him about it occasionally. But he never felt like his family members truly understood what he went through. Heilmann never picked up a gun in the Coast Guard, but as a Second Class Petty Officer serving in East Tawas, Mich., he helped people stranded on Lake Huron.
The private school voucher expansion has proven costly for districts in north central Wisconsin, to the tune of $875,640. That’s the 2017-18 cost to districts in state Senate District 29, which covers much of the Wausau metro area. The Wausau School District lost the most of all, giving up $601,976 to the voucher program, according to the Wisconsin Department of Instruction. D.C. Everest lost $175,774, while Medford lost $71,535. Edgar, Marathon City, and Auburndale combined lost $26,355.
Once upon a time, Dutch elm disease made its way to North America. There were roughly 77 million elm trees in North America prior to the arrival of the deadly fungus around 1930. Spread by a bark beetle, the disease swept across the U.S. and Canada, and by 1989, North America had lost 75% of its elm population. Wisconsin was hit hard. In the early 1950s, Milwaukee lost 16,000 elm trees in a single year to the disease.
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".
