What qualifies as a percussion instrument? When it comes to STOMP, the better question might be what doesn’t? For nearly 30 years, the troupe that creates music and excitement with everything from garbage cans to bathroom plumbing has been touring and thrilling audiences with high-energy, streetwise shows that also incorporate some athletic choreography. On its return visit to metro Detroit this weekend, the group will have a home boy in tow.
St. Patrick’s Day is more than a week away, but that’s not deterring the organizers of the DETROIT ST. PATRICK’S PARADE. The event is traditionally held on Sunday, and 2018 will be no exception. The 60th edition will roll down Michigan Avenue this weekend, a full six days before the official celebration of Ireland’s patron saint on March 17. As usual, the parade will feature marching bands, pipe-and-drum groups and floats as it makes its way through southwest Detroit.
If it’s early March, it must be time for AUTORAMA! The three-day event for fans of flashy wheels arrives in town with a bang every year at this time, and 2018 will be no exception. Around 11:45 a.m. Friday, a flame-throwing truck and a couple of similarly tricked-out cars will kick off the event known as “America’s greatest hot rod show” with an eye-popping demonstration outside Cobo Center.
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".
