Iron Man, Batman and Spidey are treated as objects of art in “ZAP! POW! BAM! : THE ART OF THE COMIC BOOK COVER,” the exhibit opening Thursday at the Alfred Berkowitz Gallery at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. The show is the creation of guest curator and collector Corey Gross, who has spent much of his life amassing a collection of comics that dates to the 1960s. (He owns nearly every Iron Man comic ever created.)
Another “Jurassic Park” movie (“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”) is due in theaters in June, but if the budding paleontologists in your care can’t wait that long for their next dino fix, gather them up and take them to Macomb Center this weekend to experience the touring EERTH’s DINOSAUR ZOO. The Aussie production offers kiddies a chance to observe and interact with a collection of life-like dinosaurs while they go on a pretend tour of prehistoric Australia. The dinos aren’t mechanical.
The organizers of THE DROP, the Motor City New Year’s Eve event that’s highlighted by a large ball drop at midnight, say they’ve outgrown their Campus Martius home, so they’re packing up and moving a few blocks north to Beacon Park, Detroit’s new outdoor hot spot at Grand River and First Street. As in years past, the festivities will start early with kiddie activities at 4 p.m. Sunday and a ball drop for kids at 6:30.
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".
