The Detroit Medical Center is announcing Monday a long-planned organizational reboot that that will simplify its management structure and result in what could be significant job reductions. The exact number of jobs that will be cut was not disclosed. DMC has eliminated about 100 positions per year for the past three years in year-end cost-cutting, but this year's reductions are expected to be deeper, perhaps around 300. That would amount to about 3% of DMC's 11,000-person workforce.
Do you wonder what Amazon meant when it said Detroit lacked the talent pool for a second headquarters? Consider a simple comparison:About 34% of metropolitan Detroit younger adults have earned a bachelor’s degree or higher. Of the U.S. metro areas on Amazon’s finalist list, every one but Miami boasts a more highly educated populace — the sort of workforce Amazon made clear it's looking for in its second headquarters.
Some first impressions following Amazon's decision to leave Detroit off its shortlist of 20 finalist cities for its second headquarters:First, did our lack of public transit scuttle Detroit's chances? Amazon made clear in its initial request for proposals that it wanted a city with a robust public transportation network for its employees to use. We don't know how much weight that carried in Amazon's winnowing down of the 238 initial proposals to its list of 20 finalist cities and regions.
Amazon left Detroit off its shortlist of cities for HQ2 mainly due to concerns over talent here. Check out this data to see the pretty stark difference between Detroit and the shortlisted cities http://on.freep.com/2n3izEX
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".
