Last Saturday’s fight between Canelo Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. was about as one-sided as a boxing match can get. The fight went the distance, but all three judges had Alvarez winning each of the 12 rounds. Yet perhaps just when fans in attendance and viewers at home were wondering why they paid for such a mismatch, the folks at HBO seemed to borrow a page from the UFC in announcing the next opponent for Alvarez.
The Boston Athletic Association honored Kathrine Switzer by officially retiring her No. 261 Boston Marathon bib number on Tuesday. Switzer ran the 2017 Boston Marathon to commemorate the 50th anniversary of becoming the first woman to finish Boston with a bib number. Switzer, 70, finished the race in 4 hours, 44 minutes and 31 seconds. The ceremony capped off a big weekend for Switzer, who ran Monday with 125 charity runners for her 261 Fearless foundation.
If ever there was a moment made for the cameras, this was it. Bobby Carpenter and Denna Laing had just completed the Boston Marathon, and the television cameras swarmed in. Race director Dave McGillivray appeared shortly after and presented them with their race medals, much to the delight of the crowd that had formed. It was a well-deserved honor for the duo, who heard the cheers all along the course. “There was so much support,” said Laing.
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".
