The first national women's convention in four decades is poised to kick off in Detroit in one month's time. It's organized by Women's March, the same activist group that led massive rallies around the world Jan. 21, the day after President Donald Trump's inauguration, to stand united in sending the message that women's rights are human rights, and defending a number of other progressive causes.
Detroit Pistons president and head coach Stan Van Gundy and his wife, Kim, have donated $10,000 to a scholarship fund for the Women’s Convention coming to Detroit in October. Writing, “in tribute to the Detroit Pistons basketball players,” the donation is "a notably large" contribution to the event’s Crowdrise fund, said Bob Bland, co-founder of Women's March. Tickets to the Women’s March’s first national convention Oct. 27-29 at Cobo Center cost $295, or $125 for students.
Women's March announced today that the theme for its first convention, set for Oct. 27-29 in Detroit, is "Reclaiming Our Time." It's a twist on the words of U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, a California Democrat who pushed back against Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin's efforts to derail her questioning in a late July House Financial Services Committee meeting. In its announcement, the Women's March organization said Waters' words: "resonate beyond the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives.
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".
