MILWAUKEE — With Republicans hours away from a vote on their tax bill, Milwaukee realtors are not buying the plan — and House Speaker Paul Ryan is answering his critics. “This tax bill, for the average taxpayer in every income group, gets a tax cut,” Ryan said. As Speaker Ryan goes on national TV to sell his tax plan, Milwaukee realtors are skeptical. “There are a lot of people who will be affected by it,” said Mike Ruzicka, President of the Greater Milwaukee Association of Realtors.
MADISON — Spurred on by students in Milwaukee County, some state lawmakers are pushing a bill to get rid of Columbus Day and replace it with “Indigenous Peoples Day.”The issue ignites a statewide debate over Christopher Columbus for the first time. Several U.S. cities have moved to abolish the holiday named for the Italian explorer, and Milwaukee County celebrated “Indigenous Peoples Day” on Columbus Day this year.
MADISON — Long before it opens a massive manufacturing plant in southeast Wisconsin, Foxconn is promising to have 1,040 employees in the state by the end of 2018. That number, part of the $3 billion incentives contract that Foxconn’s chairman and Gov. Scott Walker signed Friday, November 10th, is the first of many jobs targets for the proposed TV screen plant in Mount Pleasant.
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".
