It’s a tall task but Milwaukee firefighters are preparing for a high-rise disaster, just in case. "They are just enormous," said Milwaukee Fire Department Deputy Chief Aaron Lipski. "The one we are standing in front of (411 E. Wisconsin Ave.) takes up an entire city block." "This is very different from your average house fire," he added. To prepare for a worst case scenario, Lipski helped organize a month-long training session at an empty high-rise in Wauwatosa.
A Wisconsin father is honoring his late daughter by embarking on an epic journey on his bike. "I’ve always wanted to do something like this. I needed a cause," said Bill Conner, who's on a mission to get more people to become organ donors. "I think it’s something that she would want me to do," Conner said. The 57-year-old is cycling 2,000 miles from Madison to Fort Lauderdale in memory of his daughter, Abbey. "It’s a little bit of healing, but at the same time, to honor my daughter," Conner said.
This week marks a special time for teachers. Milwaukee Public School Superintendent Dr. Darienne Driver stopped by Craig Montessori School to help kick off Teacher Appreciation Week. "We can never celebrate our teachers enough," she said. "None of us would be in the position that we are in without our teachers."
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".
