That’s not the most inspiring rally cry from a sports team, and it’s not a direct quote from anyone in the Giants’ organization. But as the club introduced Evan Longoria at a Friday news conference, it became clear to anyone who embraces the spirit of hope:The Giants no longer will be awful. They will be extremely interesting. There is character in all directions. They are absolutely primed to be respectable once again.
Quick takes on the NBA All-Star selections, launched Thursday as the starters were named:•In terms of performance and track record, Draymond Green should be the fifth Western Conference starter — joining Stephen Curry, James Harden, Kevin Durant and Anthony Davis — instead of DeMarcus Cousins. Good for Cousins, though. He’s having a terrific season and he’s not making a scene over every little thing.
The Warriors’ all-conquering road tour left the Cleveland Cavaliers in shambles. Coach Steve Kerr’s crew didn’t cool off until Monday night’s aftermath, when they discovered there was no hot water in the visiting locker-room showers. Even at that, they got a few laughs in the deal. “Man, they got to do something!” Kevin Durant was heard to shout, just barely in anger. “Somebody call Bron (LeBron James)!”So it goes with the NBA’s best team.
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".
