A bright sun shined down through a cobalt sky Thursday along the Lake Michigan shore in Milwaukee County. A few puffy white clouds drifted overhead and a light south breeze put a gentle riffle on the water. A throng of beachgoers at Bender Park enjoyed the 86-degree air temperature; some splashed in the shallows as small waves lapped on the sand. The mid-July day was cut right out of the Chamber of Commerce brochure, no doubt about it.
Thirty-one elk were released this month from their holding pen in the Flambeau River State Forest, according to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. The animals will provide a valuable addition in numbers and genetic diversity to the state's northern elk herd, the agency said. The elk were transferred in March from Kentucky, the third year of an interstate agreement to further a reintroduction of the native mammal in Wisconsin.
MADISON - Wisconsin's "thin gray line" -- its conservation wardens -- received a robust show of support on Wednesday. It came as warden authority is facing arguably the greatest threat in the 138-year history of the force. More than 100 people overflowed a public hearing at the Capitol for Assembly Bill 411, a proposal to prohibit wardens from entering private property unless they had a reasonable suspicion that a violation had occurred.
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".
