Impact100 is an organization of women banding together in communities across Michigan and elsewhere, powered by their purses and sealed with a KISS (as in “Keep it Simple, Silly”) as a sort of unofficial mantra. Impact100 is a nonprofit created by Wendy Steele in 2001 when the working mom was living in Cincinnati. She was looking for a way to give back and encourage other women to do so, but recognized barriers such as hectic schedules and limited resources.
The irony of Cliff Russell’s passing of a heart attack at the age of 61 wasn’t lost on those of us who loved and admired him. He lived an amazing life, doing exactly what he was born to do: With his melodic voice and command of the King’s English, he communicated his thoughts through the written and spoken word unlike any other journalist in our town.
It is the elephant in the room for anyone seeking to replace Rick Snyder. And, regardless of anyone’s view of her policies or politics, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gretchen Whitmer is pulling no punches when it comes to the calamity at Michigan State University and her thoughts on its board of trustees. “It’s time to clean house at MSU,” said Whitmer, the former state legislator who started her run for governor a year ago and who holds two degrees from Michigan State.
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".
