We asked writer and August 2017 issue contributor Annette Witheridge to share with us the reasons she loves Milwaukee. Here are her picks:Unlike big cities like Los Angeles and New York City, where I currently call home, you don’t feel overwhelmed in Milwaukee. Its easy to wander through the streets of Milwaukee and stop wherever you fancy. I enjoy making stops at the Milwaukee Art Museum and the views from the Harbor House allow you to take in great views of the city.
In case you missed it, the Wisconsin State Fair has been going on since Thursday, August 3. If you haven’t made it out to the State Fair Grounds in West Allis yet, we took it upon ourselves to photograph just what exactly you’ve been missing out on. We’re talking cream puffs, fried [insert pretty much any food here] on a stick and some of the cutest animals around. Its your chance to take in the Wisconsin State Fair sights without stepping foot on the grounds.
HUMANS OF THE STATE FAIR: Peter and Karen have been to the @wistatefair “too many times to count,” according to Karen. Peter, who mainly comes for the food and people watching, ventures a guess at 40 times: “I love the fair,” he said. “I mean, I go every year. I go multiple times!” When asked about food, Karen had a very specific, very delicious-sounding rec: “The deep-fried PB&J from Machine Shed.” . . .
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".
