Last week, Sports Editor Andrew Slap wrote an article claiming that there is “no doubt” that Golden State will win this year’s championship and that the “play- offs are merely a formality.” However, with LeBron James likely waiting in the Finals, the playo s will be anything but a formality. The Warriors and Cavaliers matchup has turned into today’s premier basketball rivalry, and if the two are to meet again in the NBA Finals this year, it may go down as one of the greatest rivalries ever.
Young core in the Big Apple is very promisingThe New York Yankees recently established themselves as the top dogs in baseball after a three-game sweep of the defending World Series Champion Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. Although there’s a long way to go till October, the Yankees defeat of the Cubs in the 18th inning on Sunday night marked a significant power shift in the MLB power rankings.
49ers are the biggest draft winners after striking gold in their trade with the BearsThere were three main takeaways from the 2017 NFL Draft: the Bears are horrible and will be for a long time, the Browns and 49ers made the most of their priority picking position and players skipping their bowl games paid off. The Bears made an absolute head scratcher of a move by trading up from their third overall pick to the second overall pick to take North Carolina quarterback Mitch Trubisky.
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".
