Dan Sosnowski has never worked with ginseng before, and there's a reason for that: The earthy, bitter medicinal root isn't something Sosnowski, the general manager of Polito's Pizza in Wausau, wants to cook with. But with the first-ever International Ginseng Festival coming Sept. 15-17 to Wausau, Sosnowski and other local businesses are getting ready by making ginseng-infused wines, beers and foods.
In nearly 10 years of business, O’so Brewing Company has made a name for itself. Very quietly, the Plover-based craft brewery became the 12th-largest brewery in Wisconsin. But the next phase for O’so will certainly not be a quiet one. Earlier this month, the Stevens Point City Council approved O’so Brewing Company affiliate Big Thinker LLC’s purchase of a 20-acre site in the Stevens Point East Park Commerce Center.
Across from the street from the Merrill Post Office since Aug. 14, a sign that reads "I was an immigrant and you welcomed me" was erected by the Holy Cross Sisters in Merrill in the hopes of sparking awareness about the political climate in the U.S. right now. The Holy Cross Sisters, a religious organization that has existed in Merrill since 1923, has always promoted social justice issues and been a friend of refugees and immigrants.
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".
