Sacramento has struggled to regain relevancy in the NBA since their excellent 2001 team. Despite drafting some great talent (DeMarcus Cousins, Isaiah Thomas), the Kings have struggled to find a cohesive team that can put together a playoff season. The Kings recently brought in some youthful talent, and if they can remain dedicated to developing that talent, Sacramento could be on the right track.
Just five days after designating him for assignment, the Boston Red Sox have released third baseman Pablo Sandoval. Sandoval, who signed a five-year $95 million deal with Boston after the 2014 season, only played in 161 games in the two and a half season with the Red Sox while hitting only .237/.286/.360 with 14 home runs and 59 runs batted in. The San Francisco Giants, Sandoval’s former team, has been rumored to be interested in a reunion with the 2012 World Series MVP.
The Oakland Raiders are continuing their off-season spending spree, agreeing to a 5-year, $56 million extension with offensive lineman Gabe Jackson, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Jackson has started 28 games in his three year career and will become the third highest paid guard in the NFL behind only Kevin Zeitler and Kelechi Osemele. Jackson was named a Pro Bowl alternate last season after he went the entire season without allowing a sack.
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".
