LANSING, MI - An administrative law judge says the Ann Arbor Education Association committed an unfair labor practice in requiring a teacher to pay a service fee to the union for the 2015-16 school year. Judge Julia Stern issued her decision on June 30 in the case of Pioneer High School teacher Ronald Robinson versus the AAEA, which is an affiliate of the Michigan Education Association.
In December 2016, Gov. Rick Snyder signed a new law that grants schools more flexibility in determining when to expel or suspend students, replacing the state's previous "zero tolerance" policies for some offenses. The new law goes into effect Aug. 1, and school districts across the state are updating their policies accordingly.
ANN ARBOR TOWNSHIP, MI - Tucked in the woods of Ann Arbor Township's Barton Hills neighborhood, northwest of the city, stands a unique house that offers an eclectic take on mid-century modern design. Architect David Osler designed the original 3,300-square-foot house built in 1967, and the current owners - who purchased the property in 2001 - doubled the square footage with a new addition that includes a new master suite on the main floor and two bedroom suites on the lower level.
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".
