PINCKNEY, Mich. - There are 21 days until the opening of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. Athletes for Team USA are still qualifying to compete in the games, and Local 4 met a young man from Pinckney who's halfway around the world trying to achieve his Olympic dream. Jake Vedder doesn't do jumps, flips and tricks on a snowboard. The sport is called halfpipe, and his event is boardercross. "It's like motocross," Vedder said. "First one to the bottom wins."
DETROIT - Residents of the Heritage Place Apartments on Detroit's west side are without water due to broken pipes. "All the electricity is messed up in here," resident Michelle Haynes said. "The water is messed up in here." "For the last four days, we've had absolutely no water in the building," resident Cynthia Dowdy said. "We've went outside. We've scooped up snow, melted it on the stove to flush the toilets." The problem is broken pipes.
MACOMB COUNTY, Mich. - Karen Spranger's tenure as Macomb County clerk has been marked by one controversy after another, and there has been a slew of lawsuits involving her peers. Spranger's latest decision has put a hold on much-needed hiring for the county, and it could affect the historic backlog of filings in the clerk's office. When she returned to work last week after an administrative leave, a supervisor in the clerk's office was told by Spranger's chief deputy to leave.
@xmanRob12 That's how the guys on Fox defended him postgame. Granted, it's a much easier play for me watching from my chair, but if you let him catch it and wrap him up then.. game is over. Will haunt Williams for a long time.
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".
