For Thanksgiving 2017, the Battle Creek Enquirer is taking a look back at some memorable stories from the past 40 years:On Veteran’s Day in 2012, Dr. Carl Kinzel wore his old military uniform to work at Day One. He and receptionist Kim DeShon started talking, comparing stories, since DeShon came from a military family. When Kinzel brought up his service on the USS Shreveport, a transport ship in the Persian Gulf during Operation Desert Storm, DeShon knew exactly what ship that was.
People can have a love-hate relationship with their wheelchairs, canes and other assistive devices. Heather Meyer, executive director of Community Inclusive Recreation and DeafLINK, has seen it with participants. "They love it in that it gives them freedom. They hate it, because it reminds you of their disability," she said. So the best part of Community Inclusive Recreation's latest art project, she said, was giving everyone a chance to really work out their feelings by destroying stuff.
Tim Suprise arrived at Arcadia Brewing Co. on Saturday night and started shaking hands at the bar. He greeted familiar customers with "Thank you," and "Hey, you made it." The blue shirt he had on was frayed by age at the collar and cuffs. It was the shirt he wore when he and his wife, Mardy, opened Arcadia in Battle Creek at 103 W. Michigan Ave. 21 years ago. It was time to say good-bye to the familiar space that had been a marquee business in downtown Battle Creek so long.
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".
