GREEN BAY — A slew of local nonprofits are about to get a big boost. More than 30 charitable organizations in Brown County have been selected to be recipients of the community's first 24-hour online fundraising event. The Greater Green Bay Community Foundation and the Green Bay Packers Foundation are partnering to host Give BIG Green Bay. The all-day crowdfunding initiative is expected to bring in hundreds of thousands of dollars to benefit the chosen nonprofits.
I recently scoured the internet in search of social media trends to watch in 2018. You know, new year, new ways to network. If we’ve learned anything about our online lives in the last decade, it’s that things are constantly changing. After all, it wasn’t that long ago we thought Myspace was the greatest socialization tool to ever hit the web. Now that site is a distant memory, just like all of your embarrassing mirror selfies — or, at least, I’d hope so.
Snowier by the lake remains the forecast through Tuesday morning. Poor visibility will accompany snow totals of 6 inches or more along the lakeshore north of Milwaukee County, according to the National Weather Service in Sullivan. A lake effect snow band moving south along the lakeshore Monday morning dropped heavy bursts of 1 inch or more of snow per hour on Manitowoc and Sheboygan counties, meteorologist Sean Miller said.
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".
