A man who travels conspicuously with a horned, black goat named Deer in an old school bus he purchased in Kentucky was viciously attacked and robbed in his Detroit home Tuesday. Erick Brown, 31, says he tried to help a couple of homeless travelers and their dog, whom he met on the internet, before they turned on him, beat him savagely with a Ryobi cordless drill, ordered their dog to attack him, tied him up and stole his bank cards.
The Detroit Police Department plans to spend $1.5 million of a Department of Justice grant to hire 15 officers dedicated to fighting human trafficking, Police Chief James Craig said Thursday, Jan. 8. The announcement comes as the public days of the 2018 North American International Auto Show, which law enforcement say draws increased numbers of sex traffickers to the Detroit area, are about to kick off. "Certainly, it's no secret, that during the auto show there's much more activity," Craig said.
I remember the rusting, pale-yellow station wagon vividly. I think it was an early-1980s Plymouth Reliant station wagon. It was parked in front of a thick oak tree on someone's lawn in Saginaw Township. I was 15 and it was the early 1990s. Riding the bus to school each day, I peered out the window at that station wagon. Painted sloppily on a piece of plywood leaning against the front bumper, it said, "For sale, $300."
I've often wondered why no one has created a digital bumper sticker yet - here's the 1st digital license plate hitting roads in California, and who knows, possibly Michigan some day http://s.mlive.com/YkilMWY@mlive@mlivedetroit
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".
