Despite announcing his retirement from football at the beginning of November Andrea Pirlo still has an awful lot to offer in the game. If his footballing acumen appeared innate up until the end, a man of such robust intelligence can surely offer insight to others. His time to teach is coming. The studied face, the aesthetics of the beard, the football hipster tag of recent years, Pirlo has developed into something of an iconic figure.
If Paris Saint-Germain are going to complete their quest for the Holy Grail of the Champions League, they are going to have to do it the hard way. The Ligue 1 leaders were luckless in the draw as they were pitted against Real Madrid, spectacularly failing in Monday’s lottery, despite winning their group ahead of Bayern Munich.
You win an Olympic gold medal in Sydney in 2000, and another in Athens four years later. So, what do you do with the actual medals? Straight forward stuff really. Melt them down and give your teeth a golden glimmer. Well maybe not every athlete, but that’s what Guillermo Rigondeaux says he has done with his. If that was the most dramatic aspect of Rigondeaux’s story, he’d be a happy man. But there are much darker times he has suffered through to get to this point.
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".
