Summer came to Berkley this year with blooming gardens and a budding public art scene. Along the alley ways and main downtown Berkley corridors of 12 Mile and Coolidge, wall size murals are now on eye-catching display. In mid-July, the Berkley Downtown Development Authority (DDA) partnered with the Berkley Chamber of Commerce to sponsor the city’s first street art festival. Children were invited to create colorful sidewalk chalk art on Dorthea Street at Coolidge Highway with prizes for top artists.
On a plot of land that is approximately the size of a neighborhood lot, 30 Berkley residents are growing a farmers market of produce. Tucked neatly in between the BP gas station and a commercial building on Coolidge at Catalpa, rows of vegetables flourish in the Berkley Community Garden. It all began four years ago when Berkley High School Garden Club founder Doug Deeds was looking for a space to engage students and the community in gardening.
The Boys Scouts of America motto is only two words long, but its instruction is straightforward advice for any situation in life. “Be prepared,” is the command delivered to every boy who takes the oath to obey the Scout Law. In Royal Oak, members of Boy Scout Troop 1627 take being prepared very seriously, whether embarking on a camping trip in sub-zero weather or paddling over ocean waves.
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".
