(WXYZ) - After Rep. Dave Trott announced last week he would not be seeking re-election for Michigan's 11th Congressional District, the first Republican name to replace him has been announced. In an email early Monday morning, Rocky Raczkowski said he will be running to replace Trott in the district. He said he came to that decision after sitting down with his family last week. Roczkowski, 48, previously ran in 2010 against now Sen. Gary Peters for Michigan's 9th Congressional District.
DETROIT (WXYZ) - The Detroit Red Wings have their first preseason game on Tuesday against the Boston Bruins but they may be without one of their best offensive players. The team has yet to sign restricted free agent Andreas Athanasiou, and reports over the last few weeks have the 23-year-old forward weighing an option to play in the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) in Russia. TSN's Bob McKenzie reported on Monday Detroit has a standing offer of two years, $3.8 million for Athanasiou.
DETROIT (WXYZ) - Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan said he asked Quicken Loans Founder Dan Gilbert to lead a Super Bowl-like committee to come up with a proposal to bring Amazon's second headquarters, being called "HQ2," to Detroit. According to Duggan, within an hour of the announcement from Amazon last week, he got a call from Gilbert. "He says, 'I think this is a real opportunity. We've got to be all in. I'll play whatever role you want,'" Duggan said during the annual Detroit Homecoming event.
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".
