What to make of the mess currently unfolding in East Lansing. Not as Spartans, but as Michiganders, people who all have a stake in thepublic university system. Not as taxpayers, but as owners of the state’s second most valuable publicly-owned asset (natural resources, y’all). The obvious question is the degree to which the way our universities are managed on our behalf failed, whether substantive change is warranted and whether that substantive change will lead to better results.
Word spread on social media this week that a new eatery had opened in Mount Pleasant. A soul food eatery. Is there truth to the rumor? Yes. Yes there is. Soul Sista’s opened Monday at 1010 West Broadway, a building that has been home to among other things a caterer and bistro, a pizza place and a gas station. With three stools, calling it a restaurant is probably a bit of a stretch. Calling it an immobile food truck is a more accurate description.
An award-winning poet will visit Central Michigan University next week, and the professor who extended the invitation called her work crucial and unflinching. Vievee Francis, winner of the 2017 Kingsley-Tufts Poetry Award for her latest book Forest Primeval, will give a reading at 8 p.m. Nov. 28 in Park Auditorium. A Q-and-A session will follow.
@RealJamesWoods Which is why George Washington called out Pwnnsylvania's well-regulated militia to put down a rebellion against taxes and tyranny and led by an army veteran.
But you were fussy and ranting...
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".
