- A popular TV star is getting involved in the revitalization of Detroit. "CSI" and "Homeland" star Hill Harper just bought The Roasting Plant coffee shop in Campus Martius. "Coffee is a portal to having jobs and income in desperately-needed communities, particularily young people where unemployment rates are high. I couldn't be more proud of this company, The Roasting Plant, who makes the best coffee in the world," Harper told us.
- Cass Community Social Services will be giving tours of their new tiny homes neighborhood in Detroit this week. The homes aren't mean to be trendy -- they will provide safe, clean affordable housing for low-income Detroiters. Each Tiny Home is architecturally unique inside and out. Every 250-to-400 square foot home boasts the same type of amenities found in "full-size" homes: oven, stove, microwave, refrigerator and a washer-dryer (one machine does both).
- A puppy that was rescued in a Metro Detroit park after someone tried to do their own neuter job to the puppy and then left it in a Detroit park has found a new home. It's been several weeks since we first learned the sad story of the puppy. The baby blue pit had to have gone through excruciating pain in the first few weeks of his life. When he was found, he had a hole in his abdomen and his reproductive organs were falling out. That's not all.
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".
