CLARKSTON, Mich. - A Michigan high school basketball star received bad news Thursday in his fight to play amid a dispute over his eligibility. Thomas Kithier and his family went to court Thursday hoping a judge would grant an injunction, allowing him to play for Clarkston High School during the court process. The judge denied the injunction, so Kithier will be sidelined while the legal battle ensues.
DETROIT - Local 4 took a walk in Detroit on Wednesday with Jason Heien, and people were stopping him on street corners to congratulate him on his beard. In his office at Quicken Loans, he has celebrity status. Ever since Heien was named Wahl's Man of the Year, the 44-year-old engineer has had a pep in his step. "It's a great honor," he said. Heien takes pride in his beard. It started a year ago with a Halloween costume, as Heien was Neptune and needed a fake beard.
DETROIT - A Metro Detroit man who was convicted in a fatal shooting was released Thursday from a Metro Detroit prison after 45 years. Richard Phillips, 71, was sent to prison for the 1971 murder of Gregory Harris, but has maintained his innocence. Phillips will now be released while prosecutors appeal the decision. A judge said Phillips can be released with an electronic tether. Phillips was convicted after the testimony of a witness who has since died.
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".
