Three. That's the number of precincts Detroit mayoral challenger Coleman Young II won in the Nov. 7 general election, according to an analysis of precinct-level data. The gap between Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and Young actually grew wider between the primary and general election contests. Overall, Duggan won 72% of the votes cast to Young's 28%, a 44-point difference that outpaced the 41 points that separated the candidates in the primary election.
To win next week’s Detroit mayoral election, challenger Coleman Young II has invested heavily in a narrative about the gaps in the city’s recovery. Poor Detroiters aren’t feeling it, he has said over and over, and are being left behind in the “new” Detroit that’s attracting investors and residents. You can easily see the truth in what Young has been saying, in the narratives around the many unimproved Detroit neighborhoods, the city’s sky-high poverty rate and persistent un- and under-employment.
Let's be clear: Michigan school officials want kids in school every day. But they really want kids in school on Wednesday, one of the most important days of the school year. "There's just a hard, truthful reality to making sure that students are there that day," said Nikolai Vitti, superintendent for the Detroit Public Schools Community District. "But we want to try to build that culture so that that's happening every day, for students in every school." That reality?
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".
