Plymouth — Jeff Blashill strode into USA Hockey Arena like a hockey coach looking for some wins. Fresh from a morning of work in his office in the Red Wings dressing room at Joe Louis Arena, Blashill seemed to churn with purpose. Animated, he did not so much sit for an interview as seize the opportunity to talk about the team, which debuts in two months in preseason. The intensity of the Wings’ first season out of the playoffs, and last in its old home, ebbed.
Detroit — An offensively-challenged hockey club would prefer to avoid a hearing in which it would likely attempt to diminish the value of its leading goal scorer, and time presses them both. The Red Wings and Tomas Tatar will meet with an arbitrator Thursday to determine his merits and devise a new contract unless they negotiate a deal. According to a report Friday from Slovakia, Tatar said he wants to stay.
Detroit — Jimmie Johnson, one of three seven-time NASCAR champions in history, took a nice little five-mile bike ride mid-afternoon Thursday around Corktown, along the Detroit River and downtownJohnson said it is difficult to predict the championship battle this season, because of the new, complex scoring rules. He also said wishes the racing groove at Michigan International Speedway would finally widen out a bit after the repaving in 2011.
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".
