Is there any Detroit story like that of Sixto Rodriguez? For years, he was considered just another unassuming neighborhood guy in the Cass Corridor, and only a few people knew he had cut some records back in the 1960s. Turns out that most of the people who knew were in South Africa, where his lyrics resonated with the counterculture. Only they hadn't the faintest idea where Rodriguez was until several years ago, when fans finally found him.
When Kristen Huston and her husband moved into Cass Park Apartments about eight years ago, it was the culmination of a romance with Detroit. Along with her husband, a student at Wayne State University at the time, the couple spent so much time exploring the city that they finally became hooked and decided to make it their home.“We fell in love with it,” Huston says. “Detroit was going to make a comeback and we wanted to be here.
readers may recall our article late last year about the way Nestlé has pumped billions of gallons of Michigan’s water out of the ground. For this privilege, the company has paid at most a few thousand dollars in fees to the state, even as everybody from environmental groups to sitting judges have said letting Nestlé pump as much as it would like to would harm the environment.Well, take a look at a very good article from Bloomberg Businessweek by journalist Caroline Winter .
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".
