LINCOLN PARK, Mich. - Ira Harris and her children were living with family in Detroit but needed a place to call their own. She heard about Habitat for Humanity in Detroit. "I heard it on the news, Channel 4 (WDIV), and I looked it up and I fit all the requirements, so why not?" she said. But it wouldn't be easy. Ground was broken on the home in Lincoln Park last fall, then the organization hit money issues and needed a financial rehab of its own.
DETROIT - An 8-month-old baby died Thursday after suffering multiple head fractures at a Detroit home. Nasear Ferguson was only 8 months old when he died. His family said he would light up any room he was in with constant smiles and nonstop happiness. Hearts were broken after that smile was taken away this week. “He was a real happy baby," his grandmother said. "He was so joyful." The child's father, Dominique Jones-Hardy, told police that he laid Nasear on a bed Monday and walked out of the room.
ROYAL OAK, Mich. - Two homes on Garden Avenue in Royal Oak had their furnaces stolen from them. Both homes were empty; one is for sale and the other is for rent. Both furnaces were old, so who would want to steal them? “That is an excellent question," Royal Oak Police Lt. Keith Spencer said. "I don’t have an answer for that right now, because it is unusual for someone to take an old furnace. We are looking into finding out why.” David Oliwek went to the rental home to fix the door.
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".
