Owner Robert Liggett Jr. is selling the newspaper to John and Terry Minnis, founders and publishers of bimonthly Grosse Pointe Magazine. As part of the ownership change, former Detroit News columnist Pete Waldmeir will come out of retirement as the weekly's opinion editor. The first edition under the owners is scheduled for Aug. 24.
The Detroit Red Wings moved swiftly over the weekend to keep their 85-year-old logo out of the clutches of Nazis, Klansmen and other white supremacists. Images of the iconic red winged wheel being used by participants at the violent "United the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Va., popped up Saturday afternoon, prompting the team to issue a statement condemning the logo's appropriation. It also threatened legal action, as did a similar statement issued by the National Hockey League.
The Detroit Lions opened the 2017 preseason with a 24-10 victory over the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday — but at a cost. Hurt in the first quarter was second-year defensive end Kerry Hyder to what's being reported as a season-ending Achilles injury. Hyder, 26, emerged as a rookie last season to lead Detroit with eight sacks. It's unknown if he could have repeated that in 2017, but the team was expected to rely on his production at an otherwise thin position.
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".
