The question is simple: Should the Giants trade for Giancarlo Stanton? The answer isn’t simple. There are persuasive arguments both ways, so much so that I find myself having cold feet at the latest MLB.com reports. Stanton would accept a trade to the Giants! The Giants would send Joe Panik, and prospects Tyler Beede and Chris Shaw! The Giants would assume $250 million of Stanton’s contract through 2029! A check of the contract web site, Spotrac, paints a grim financial picture for the Giants.
Mandy Shanahan might want to see Jimmy Garoppolo as a 49er. You might want to see Jimmy Garoppolo as a 49er. But as our chat with ESPN’s Adam Schefter reminded us yesterday, the 49ers’ desire to see Jimmy Garoppolo as a 49er is nothing personal. It’s strictly business. 49ers fans could be forgiven for falling in love with the idea of Garoppolo as the future: he’s young, he studied under Touchdown Tommy Brady, he has all sorts of buzz about his talent even back to his days at Eastern Illinois.
The Republican tax bill unveiled Thursday amounts to a “tax on education,” according to one North Carolina college administrator. The 76-page bill, called the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, does away with a number of tax deductions and credits to help pay for lowering personal income tax rates and corporate tax rates. Colleges, universities and students could be affected by many of the changes.
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".
