But it does involve patience. Rather than spreading limited resources throughout the city, Cox’s plan first targets three broad areas of the city (Livernois/McNichols, the Villages/East Riverfront, and Southwest Detroit) in the hopes of achieving quick successes that can be replicated one day in other neighborhoods. It’s a strategy that’s not without controversy, sparking accusations of City Hall picking winners and losers.
The neighborhood’s crime rate has increased, and its population has dropped 13.5 percent since 2011 to 17,325, according to the U.S. Census. “We hear gunshots all the time. There’s just a lot of riffraff up and down the street,” said Roshondal Dortch, a home health care aide who lives in her mother’s home on Warwick near West Warren. “The police drive down the block once in awhile but I can’t say it’s getting better.
On the other side of McNichols is the Fitzgerald neighborhood, which is the focus of City Hall rejuvenation efforts. Bagley is also the epicenter of the Live6 Alliance, a nonprofit funded by foundations, the University of Detroit Mercy and the Detroit Economic Growth Corp., to improve commercial districts around the Livernois and McNichols area. The efforts have improved the stretch of Livernois known as the Avenue of Fashion, bringing in bike lanes, outdoor art installations and new businesses.
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".
