It can be an embarrassing situation for older women - not making it to the restroom in time due to a personal health issue. Now there's a robotic operation that is helping them resume a normal, active lifestyle. "A lot of things I didn't do like swimming. I couldn't go swimming. I belong to the Y," said Virginia Robison, Mt. Morris resident. She is an active senior citizen, but pelvic floor dysfunction made it tough for her to enjoy working out or even joining friends for a bite to eat.
The men and women who work for the various county road commissions throughout Mid-Michigan woke up to a handful Friday morning. The challenge of rain changing to freezing drizzle then snow left their work cut out for them. Salt trucks were constantly pulled in to be reloaded at the Michigan Department of Transportation barn in Saginaw County on Friday. Crews reported at 2 a.m., a couple hours ahead of their normal schedule.
Some Mid-Michigan university students are ready to display a self-driving car at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The Kettering University students were putting the finishing touches on the autonomous car on Thursday. They have been working on the Chevy Bolt since last September. "From pretty much a car that you would get off the dealer lot, transforming it into something that is the future of tomorrow," said Noah Lukins, student.
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".
