The opening of pickleball courts in Delta Township raises a pressing question: What the heck is pickleball? It turns out it’s a sport played on a badminton-sized court with a net in the middle. Players use what are basically giant ping-pong paddles to hit a ball that's similar to a whiffle ball over the net. About four years ago, Delta Township Parks and Recreation Director Marcus Kirkpatrick was invited by a group of Delta Township residents to join them for a few games of pickleball.
Memorial Day isn’t just a free day off work: It’s a federal holiday for remembering the people who died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. Originally called Decoration Day after the end of the Civil War, the holiday is observed annually on the last Monday of May. This weekend, celebrate the holiday with parades, services and more. Unless otherwise noted, events are held on Monday, May 29. The City of Lansing will hold its annual Memorial Day ceremony at noon on Saturday.
EAST LANSING – There is risk involved in what owner Jeremy Sampson hopes is next for Lansing United. Then again, the risk of not testing the limits of this gutsy Lansing soccer dream, which began five years ago on a bar napkin, is probably worse than failure. To always wonder, to regret not trying. Sampson, whose Lansing United last week began its fourth season in the National Premier Soccer League, is exploring the possibility of moving to a higher level of U.S. soccer.
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".
