SAGINAW, MI - Friday Night Live kicked off it's 2017 season by Rockin' the Riverfront in Saginaw's Morley Plaza. The crowd danced to the music of Da Blooze Brothers, a tribute to Jake and Elwood as Elwood wandered through the people, sitting on the occasional empty chair while playing his harmonica. The Chase Engel Band opened the concert but had to end their show abruptly when a brief shower scattered the crowd.
SAGINAW, MI - MLive's John "Gonzo" Gonzalez and Amy Sherman will travel many miles in search of Michigan's Best French Fries. On Thursday, July 6, 2017, they started their day at Water Tower Sports Pub in Lexington on the shore of Lake Huron and then journeyed more than 80 miles to Saginaw to visit Bradley's Bistro, 216 Federal, in downtown Saginaw. Bradley's was nominated by MLive readers for their fries with truffle-laced sea salt served with roasted garlic aioli.
Robert G. (Bob) Heft, of Thomas Township, holds the original flag he designed for a class project as a high school student in 1958, as he stands by a large flag in front of Draper Chevrolet on Bay Road in Saginaw Township on June 29, 2007. Even though he received only a "B" grade, his design became the official American 50-star flag. His design became the longest-serving flag in U.S. history on July 5, 2007, surpassing the 48-star banner. Heft, 67, died Saturday, Dec. 12, 2009.
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".
