GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- When Crystal Jackson learned her parents were targeted for money, she thought it was important to spread the word about schemes aimed at senior citizens. So she contacted the FOX 17 Problem Solvers to do just that. "He would call, hang the phone up and call right back," 88-year-old Nellie Applewhite said. Applewhite and her 93-year-old husband have had enough with the phone calls.
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Although there were increases among many felony crime categories, chief David Rahinsky said he’s pleased with the efforts his department has made to protect the city overall. That’s also despite having fewer officers. “There’s a lot of good hard work in this report,” Rahinsky stated. Tuesday, the department also released its policy for “Impartial Policing”. The policy entails guidelines officers are to follow to avoid racial profiling and other biases.
KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- Missy Nousen said a free membership at Family Fitness left her $5,000 in debt. She recalled, "January of 2014, I got a phone call saying that I won a free 30-day membership." "I had two little grand babies that I wanted to chase around and have the energy to do that," she figured she'd join. But Nousen said her sessions with a personal trainer at the Portage location were short-lived. "I went to do a squat and my knee popped, and he heard it.
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".
