We asked the comedian Jena Friedman to review an art show. This is what she gave us. Otherwise known as epididymal hypertension, “blue balls” refer to the testicular pain that occurs after prolonged sexual stimulation without ejaculation. It’s also a great way to describe Jeff Koons’s current show at Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills. I should preface this by saying that I’m a fan of Jeff Koons.
Golden Eagles Alumni (GEA) will enter The Basketball Tournament much differently this year. Last time, they were a No. 6 seed playing an Illinois Hoopville Warriors team that reached the tournament’s second weekend twice. Now they’re the No. 1 seed in the Midwest Region and will take on the Midwest Dream Squad, according to the newly released 2017 TBT bracket. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. CT on Saturday, July 15 at Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois. Second-round games are the following day.
Those who complain about Wojo scheduling easy non-conference opponents got some more ammunition last week when Chicago State revealed its full schedule and Marquette was on it. The Golden Eagles and Cougars will square off Wednesday, Nov. 29. KenPom.com ranked Chicago State 335th out of 351 teams in the country last year. Only three of the Cougars’ six wins on the season were against Division I teams. Chicago State plays in the Western Athletic Conference, which is 1-10 all-time against Marquette.
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".
