That's how Steve Swart learned to cook, along with a little help from his friends. And not just any food, but ramen — a rich Japanese noodle dish (and not the pre-packaged, dorm-food variety). The DJ turned chef is now cooking up a storm at Ruckus Ramen in the Avenue Cafe in downtown Lansing. Tucked away inside a red building on East Michigan Avenue, where you can play arcade games and have a drink at the bar, is a ramen joint. To Swart, ramen is the ultimate winter comfort food.
The neon sign at the former Schmidts grocery was there when the store opened in 1958. The "shopping cart lady" was dressed in heels, wearing a suit or dress and a pill box hat, pushing a shopping cart filled with groceries. The sign survived the store's closing in March of 1991 and continues to be a conversation piece.
LANSING — A "ghost town," is how Lansing and other communities in the Midwest, were described, in the city's worst-ever blizzard on Jan. 26, 1967. Lansing set a new record of 24 inches of snowfall over two days. Mayor Max Murninghan declared a state of emergency. He urged folks to stay in their homes or work in their neighborhoods to dig out fire hydrants and move stalled cars from the streets. Michigan State University closed for the first time in its 112-year history.

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".
