Sometimes division is tough to wrap your mind around. And fossil layers? Forget about it. But that’s not stopping a group of fourth graders at Blessed Savior North from learning, and having fun in the process. Each day, the 16 students in Jessica Borkowski’s classroom have access to 30 Chromebooks. Students use apps like Zearn Math and StoryWorks to complete assignments, engage with lessons and, if you ask them, have the most fun they’ve ever had at school.
More than 100 years ago, the Knights of Peter Claver and Ladies Auxiliary was founded on a mission to serve others and effect positive change in the community. Headquartered in New Orleans, the Order now has more than 700 subordinate units in several countries. It is the largest Black Catholic lay organization in the United States, including a strong presence in Milwaukee. And, if you ask long-time member Lillie Hollomann, not much has changed since its inception in 1909.
A shelter from the cold is more than a warm bed or a hot meal. Sometimes warmth means more to a person than the heat itself. Just ask Kenneth Bernoska, who has become a regular guest of the warming room at St. Benedict the Moor Parish in Milwaukee. “(St. Ben’s) provides warmth and stability,” he said. “I haven’t found that other places.”Bernkosa is one of dozens of homeless men, women and children who have been seeking more than just shelter under the caring watch of the volunteers at St. Benedicts.
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".
