Reader question: Do you know what is being built on Lightning Drive across from Forefront Dermatology? Answer: It’s the new headquarters of GLK Foods, which was previously known as Great Lakes Kraut. The rendering above shows what it will look like when finished. The $2.3 million building in Appleton is on Lightning Drive near Evergreen Drive, north of Interstate 41.

But it can and often does. Current holiday spending surveys predict you’ll part with between $950 and $1,200 this year. That’s a lot of dough at a time when housing, car loans, cable and cell bills, insurance and food costs claim most of the average person’s paycheck. Unless you’ve been buying and stashing gifts through the year, spending is going to be concentrated over the next month.
If you’ve decided to stay home on Thanksgiving – and wait to shop another day – you’re not alone. Thanksgiving Day shopping appears to be wearing out its welcome, according to statistics from the National Retail Federation. Twenty percent of American shoppers, or 32 million, plan to go out to shop on Thanksgiving Day, according to the trade group’s annual consumer survey. While that sounds like a lot of people, it’s the fifth year in a row the numbers have declined.
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".
