It's been 50 years since the launching of the Apollo program that would eventually land humans on the moon, but the few men who blasted into space are still treated as rock stars. Which is as it should be. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo space program, the 2017 EAA AirVenture, which opens Monday, is organizing an astronaut reunion, a new exhibit at the EAA Aviation Museum featuring a moon rock brought back by Apollo 15 astronauts and a panel discussion Friday evening.
Dean Rosko has a superpower: He can command 40,000 people to clap in unison. And nod their heads and tap their feet. And polka. Sitting at the helm of an Allen organ tricked out in Milwaukee Brewers colors and logos — with all the keys, switches and buttons, it's sort of a musical cockpit — Rosko is the mostly unseen musician entertaining Miller Park crowds during games. Fans who find themselves suddenly yelling "Charge!" while pumping their fist in the air?
It was a far different homecoming for Gary Wetzel than when he returned from Vietnam. The South Milwaukee police and fire department escort, a couple dozen Patriot Guard motorcycle riders, children holding "Gary-thank you for your service" and "Welcome Home" signs, friends and neighbors waving small American flags on Wednesday. Severely wounded in a helicopter crash and firefight that would lead to the amputation of his left arm, Wetzel had no such greeting when he returned in 1968.
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".
