The Mayan civilization built huge pyramids, temples and giant stone monuments adorned with ornate carvings while ruling a wide swath of Central America. They kept detailed calendars, were adept at agriculture and astronomy, communicated through a sophisticated written language and developed city-states connected by a complex trade network in what is now southeastern Mexico, Guatemala, Belize and parts of Honduras and El Salvador. And then they vanished.
Two dogs have tested positive for a respiratory illness called "strep zoo" at the Wisconsin Humane Society's Ozaukee campus. The Wisconsin Humane Society is investigating the source of the outbreak and temporarily stopping the intake of dogs surrendered from the public. Though rare, there is some evidence that the illness could be transmitted from dogs to humans.
If it seems like southern Wisconsin has gotten more snow than normal, we actually haven't. Sure February has been over-prescribed in snowfall, or at least it might seem that way to shovelers with aching muscles. But December and January were below normal for snowfall and the recent waves of falling flakes have only boosted southern Wisconsin to ... average. Since December, Milwaukee has gotten a very normal 32.4 inches of snow.

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".
