The UNLV Rebels have a new look. Here it is, via the university:It’s a sleek logo. Here is the old one, for comparison’s sake:The school’s got this explanation for the new logo’s design elements:This logo looks cool, I think, and it’s thoughtful. The general shape outline mirrors that of the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign that’s plastered across a coffee mug your parents brought back from a debaucherous weekend in 2004. There’s no longer a feather in the Rebel’s cap, but instead a red star.
Tim Tebow is not a good minor league baseball player. He just posted a .648 OPS in 64 Low-A ball despite being eight years older than the average player in that league, but the Mets decided to promote him anyway to High-A Port St. Lucie. The former Florida star and NFL famous person was probably not promoted on the merits. I know, objectively, that Tebow is not en route to a prosperous major league career.
The web of NCAA rules that governs athletic transfers is complicated, but the basics are simple. A football player who wants to transfer from one school to another needs his previous school to release him from his scholarship, or he can’t get an athletic scholarship at his new school. (For many, that’s a de-facto restriction on transferring at 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".
