Black and Red United can confirm Steve Goff’s reporting that Paul Arriola, USMNT and Tijuana midfielder, is on his way to D.C. to sign with D.C. United. He will arrive in D.C. shortly to have his medical evaluation, and then will sign immediately thereafter. We can also confirm that the transfer fee D.C. United will be paying to Xolos will be the largest in the team’s history, and that his salary will be the largest in the team’s recent memory.
Congratulations, China: You’ve caught our disease.The Asian nation is making credit more readily available to consumers. The results, as any of us who’ve driven by a mobile home with a Cadillac and a satellite dish stationed outside can attest, have been disastrous. The Chinese are just as hooked on the ability to outspend their means as Americans are.We are in no position to judge: A complete inability to handle credit is how the U.S. government ended up owning China $1 trillion.
D.C. United comes into the game against the best team in the league right now on a streak of poor performances unmatched in recent memory. United’s playoff hopes, which were minuscule just a few games now, are now effectively impossible. So what should United do with the rest of its season? What are the goals for a team that can’t make the playoffs? The main goal should be to give players who need experience and playing time to develop into MLS starters that experience and playing time.
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".
