Hockey season is less than a month away, but before your favourite players hit the ice, they have to hit the studio. Welcome to NHL Media Day, where networks get to collect all of the behind-the-scenes footage their hockey-loving hearts desire. It's also where Winnipeg Jets' Mark Scheifele channels his inner Derek Zoolander with a splash of Horatio Caine. Yup, you can go ahead and drop the mic on that shoot. From blue steel to mean muggin,' which also seemed to be a theme of the day.
Andy Murray may have lost at Wimbledon, but he's winning praise for his comments in a post-match press conference. The British tennis star was quick to interject Wednesday when a reporter referred to the man who defeated Murray, American Sam Querrey, as the "first U.S. player to reach a major semifinal since 2009." "Male player," Murray said, cutting off the reporter before he could finish his question.
Down 0-2 in the series, the Nashville Predators needed a serious boost — and they got it from their fans. After Nashville went up 2-1 in Game 3 at home, the Predators' faithful struck up a now infamous taunt directed at Pittsburgh Penguins' goalie Matt Murray. And with the chant came a shift in momentum, as Nashville won two straight at home to even up the series 2-2. But just where did the chant come from? It all started in section 303 of Nashville's Bridgestone Arena.
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".
