If you looked closely, beneath the fishnet hose, the blue-ribbon Lady Gaga doll had a tattoo. The Dorothy had a basket, just like Judy Garland in “The Wizard of Oz,” and in this runner-up’s basket was a little stuffed dog. It’s the details that make winners in the annual Goodfellows doll-dressing competition. And talent, of course, along with imagination. But what resonated with the judges Monday morning were the little things, on dolls that will soon work their way to little people.
Farmington Hills — If you’re stuck in the last pocket of Oakland County awaiting the all-clear on its water, it helps to be a home brewer. Or a dog. The boil water alert sparked last week by a broken water main was lifted Sunday in the final seven of 11 affected communities — Commerce Township, Orchard Lake Village, Walled Lake, West Bloomfield Township, Wixom, Novi and Farmington Hills.
The foundation that helped create the QLine is reinventing itself to focus on the people the QLine doesn’t reach. The Hudson-Webber Foundation, which bankrolled the feasability study for the M-1 Rail system, will now look beyond downtown and Midtown to try to make sure the rest of the city shares in the recovery. “It’s the same overarching goal — to ensure a strong quality of life in Detroit,” said Melanca Clark, president and CEO of the 78-year-old, $170 million foundation.
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".
