Little Caesars Arena opened TuesdayÂ night with the first of what will be a six-night stand by Michigan artist Kid Rock. The venueâ€™s grand openingÂ concert event was the first chanceÂ for most of the attendees to visitÂ the new arena, which lives and breathes Detroit, from its decor to its food options to its merchandise.
Sue Cameron never thought she’d see her daughter, 20-year-old Alyssa Patrias, compete in a Miss Michigan preliminary pageant. Patrias was born with Down syndrome and a heart defect that required open-heart surgery at just 10 weeks old. So when the Miss America pageant—associated with Miss Michigan — gave the thumbs up for her to compete in the Miss Downriver pageant on Aug. 26, Cameron, 64, was stunned and moved to tears. Her daughter would accomplish something that had never been done before.
With its funding backed in part by Detroit taxpayers' money, and in a city where more than 80 percent of the people are black, hosting Kid Rock as the inaugural act at the new Little Caesars Arena—which opened Tuesday with the first show of Rock's six-night stand—fueled controversy in the Motor City. Some Detroiters were furious over Rock's long-time use of the Confederate flag in his performances, a symbol associated with racism and segregation.
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".
