- Employees at two Detroit area Firehouse Sub shops are suddenly in the lurch and without a paycheck after the owner of the franchises suddenly closes one location and can't pay employees at another. Deeaira Whitfield used to work at the Firehouse Subs in Berkley. She said the franchise was suddenly shut down and the owner hasn't paid his staff, including her, since the sudden closure. "He hasn't said anything and even when he have checks, the checks bounce," Whitfield said.
- Seven dogs from Florida arrived at Detroit Dog Rescue on Harper Avenue Monday. "We have linked up with Animal Rescue Corps and we're expecting a shipment of dogs to come in that were affected by Hurricane Irma," said Kristina Rinaldi of the Detroit Dog Rescue. "This is the first shipment of dogs. There will be more to come because not only Florida, but also Texas, really needs some help." All kinds of dogs from a pit bull to a hound dog came along for the ride to the Motor City.
- It was the news 18-year-old Indya Nelson was waiting to hear. "I get an email saying … you are in Teen Michigan. I start flipping out," she said. But that joy of being selected as a state contestant for the 2018 Miss Michigan Teen USA soon faced a harsh reality. Then she learned the entry fee is $200. “Where am I going to get this?" she said. But Indya says she can't let her lack of finances to pay the $200 entry fee stop her now. She has already overcome many obstacles. As a student she was bullied.
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".
