DETROIT - Abuse victims often have their stories shared, but many times it's unclear what happens next for the survivors. There's an eye-opening program that helps survivors of abuse turn their lives around. Mend On The Move sells handcrafted jewelry that's created by women who survived abuse and addiction and found the courage to begin again. Local 4's Karen Drew was allowed inside a work session at a home in Detroit. The women are still hiding from their abusers, but wanted to share their stories.
OAKLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. - The Local 4 Defenders have learned detailed information about what may have happened inside the Oakland Township home of a former college professor who was found guilty of running drug house. Prosecutors said the former Oakland University professor owned a party house furnished with drugs, alcohol, guns and teenagers. The parents of the teenagers said they had no idea what was going on.
DETROIT - Local 4 Defender Karen Drew went digging through inspection reports of Metro Detroit Medicare nursing homes, and some of the findings were a surprise. Many nursing home patients are sick and elderly and rely on others because they can't speak or walk. While many of our parents and grandparents are receiving quality care, there are others reporting abuse and neglect. What's really going on at the facilities? The Defenders spent months scouring inspection reports.
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".
