Edward Donaldson Jr. had no idea he lived in a designated "evacuation zone" for a natural gas transmission pipeline — until he was standing on the other side of Brown Road from his home in Oakland County's Orion Township for more than three hours Monday night, shivering in just a sweatshirt-type jacket. Donaldson lives about a quarter-mile from the site of a large natural gas leak, explosion and fire that left an 18-foot crater not far from the Great Lakes Crossing Outlets mall Monday night.
DNR managers have to weigh how much to let beavers do what they do, versus preserving some of Belle Isle's large willow and other trees. As work crews dig and build on Belle Isle to revamp Lake Okonoka, another hard-working crew has been busy transforming that part of the island on the Detroit River as well — a colony of beavers.
Looking back before moving forward was the theme at the First Latin American Baptist Church of Detroit on Saturday, as nearly 200 current and former parishioners said goodbye to their Delray neighborhood home of the past 50 years, losing their location to the pending Gordie Howe bridge project. “The building holds a lot of memories for us — so many worship services, Bible studies, baptisms, weddings, funerals, quincañeras, different outreach activities.
I will be talking about Lake St. Clair and Great Lakes issues I've been covering recently at 5 p.m. this Saturday at The Boll House, 158 Ridge Rd., Grosse Pointe Farms. Part of the Grosse Pointe Artists Association's 11th Annual Our Rivers, Our Lakes exhibition. Come on out!
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".
