When Jimmy Butler went down Friday night with a non-contact knee injury, every Minnesota Timberwolves fan collectively gasped and cringed. In a season that has seen so many NBA stars miss time to injury, the Wolves’ All-Star appeared to be in some trouble. But on Saturday evening, Minnesota supporters were given reason to exhale, when the Timberwolves announced that Butler had a “meniscal injury,” not an ACL tear. Now, the Wolves’ announcement was purposefully vague.
Shohei Ohtani faced Major-League batters Saturday for the first time since signing with the Los Angeles Angels, which meant for one afternoon the baseball world focused its attention on Cactus League action at Tempe Diablo Stadium. Now, before we should go any further, we should acknowledge that a player’s first action of Spring Training is absolutely meaningless from an analytical perspective.
On Saturday, Kansas defeated Texas Tech 74-72 to improve to 23-6 overall and 12-4 in conference play. With the victory, the Jayhawks sewed up yet another Big 12 championship, their 14th in a row, giving them the DI record for most consecutive conference titles. It sometimes seems as if we don’t appreciate often enough just how remarkable the Jayhawks’ streak truly is.
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".
