Heat president Pat Riley addressed a bunch of issues in a Friday morning news conference: • On where the Heat ranks in the East compared with Boston and Cleveland and others: “Everyone is giving teams something. The preseason ratings - the ones I respect - they can do a pretty good job of rating where teams might finish. So many things happen during the regular season with teams. Some times teams at the top might not go as hard as you think. Might not matter as much [to them] to win 60 games.
A six-pack of Dolphins notes on Friday: • Ndamukong Suh has been a lot more open and engaging with the media in recent weeks, and this week he explained the challenges of being a self-admitted introvert who’s an NFL star and expected to provide leadership to teammates. “I’m definitely not an easy person to get to know, nor do I necessarily allow people to get to know me like that, just because I’m a natural introvert,” he said.
The view that Cleveland and Boston are insurmountable obstacles in the East, virtually assured of meeting in the Eastern Conference Finals? Heat president Pat Riley apparently doesn’t buy it. “I know we see an opportunity, because there isn’t a Golden State in our conference, or a San Antonio or maybe a Houston,” Riley said Friday in a preseason news conference, days before the Heat opens training camp Tuesday at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. “There are opportunities for us.
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".
