School activist Helen Moore — who has a 50-year history of being outspoken on education issues in Detroit —will have her say, formally, before the Detroit Board of Education today, two days after being removed temporarily by security for being disruptive at a meeting. The district has scheduled a special board meeting for this afternoon. On the agenda: Moore's group, the Keep the Vote/No Takeover Coalition, will be making a presentation.
The Detroit Board of Education on Thursday was urged to steer clear of Mayor Mike Duggan's school proposals and to sue the state during a meeting in which school activist Helen Moore had her formal chance to address the board. The meeting came two days after a chaotic board meeting in which Moore — a longtime activist in the city — was removed by security because she repeatedly disrupted the meeting by shouting at board members while they were trying to conduct business.
They read the names of the victims. They observed a moment of silence. They marched down the streets of Detroit. And they begged adults to do something to stop gun violence in their hallways. In some schools, they prayed. Across metro Detroit and the state this morning, thousands of students participated in the National School Walkout, an event that united students at thousands of schools across the U.S.
I can finally see the surface of this part of my desk, after cleaning it off for the first time this year! Of course it’s all on the floor. (And I won’t show you the rest of my desk) https://t.co/lLXEH9cJh2
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".
