It took a village to save Lary Sorensen, and the village had a donkey in it. There were also a mailman and a nurse, among others. And a sociopathic murderer, though he was more of a curiosity than the turning point he probably should have been. Sorensen was one of the best pitchers Michigan ever produced, one of the best sportscasters, and one of the worst drunks.
If birds, bees and even educated fleas do it, it’s safe to assume that polar bears do, too. But a pair of bears at the Detroit Zoo apparently didn’t do it very well, so one of them has been replaced. A 5-year-old female named Suka has arrived in Royal Oak from a zoo in Madison, Wisconsin, with zookeepers hoping she can set off sparks in the Arctic Ring of Life exhibit with a 13-year-old named Nuka.
Maybe it’s just the price that’s hurting Jerrold Jenkins’ book. Or maybe it’s Larry Nassar, locked away in Arizona but contaminating things his verminous hands never even touched. If you care about Michigan State University basketball, the book is worth the $59.95: lots of research, inviting writing, memorable photos, 340 silver-gilded pages and a 3-D pebble-grain basketball popping out of the cover. But ...Larry Nassar. Molester, exploiter, stealer of dreams, Spartan.
@carruth6@TonyPaul1984 ... that few of us have watched. I’ll take a team with single-digit losses over a team with a .500 record in its conference. (See also 27-8/15-1 Vermont, which lost to Ky by 4, beat #UMBC twice by 43 total — and then tanked in the NIT. Life, and mid/mini-majors, are a mystery.)
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".
