A short documentary-style video about sports-cap culture directed by famed filmmaker Spike Lee will debut Tuesday in Lids stores across America. The Zionsville-based headgear retailer hired Lee to produce the piece, which prominently features the company. It also will be used in an online campaign to promote Lids. The video is intended to give viewers an inside look at contemporary headwear culture and how Lids caters across the fan-to-fashion spectrum, according to the company.
The Indianapolis Colts are saying so long to one of their most valuable members. No, Andrew Luck is not retiring. But the all-star quarterback will no doubt feel the impact of the change. The Colts announced Monday that long-time head team physician Arthur Rettig is stepping down from his job after 33 years with the team. Rettig was the first physician to join the Colts upon the team’s relocation from Baltimore in 1984 and has served as head team physician since 1999.
Gen Con organizers expect record attendance and economic impact when the massive gaming confab—the city’s biggest convention—unfolds here next month for its 50th anniversary event. Officials announced early this month that four-day badges are sold out for the first time in the event’s history—which dates back to 1968. And one-day badges are moving so fast, organizers warned those could also sell out well ahead of the Aug. 17-20 event at the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium.
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".
