Iâ€™m Tanking Our Relationship for a Better Draft Pick Next SeasonLooking over our recent performance, itâ€™s clear that weâ€™re not going to make it. Weâ€™re at different points in our life. We lack that intangible chemistry thatâ€™s a hallmark of great couples. We tried, but we donâ€™t have what it takes to be something long term and significant. Which is why I have decided to tank our relationship so I can get a better pick in next yearâ€™s draft.
Dear Mom and Dad: I’ve Decided to Live Every Day like It’s Burning ManHi! It was nice to briefly talk to you on the phone when you were at Chelseaâ€™s wedding in Vermont, and I hope things are going well with redecorating the summerhouse at the Cape. But that’s not why I’m writing. I know you’ve been hearing some strange things. Some slanders about my lifestyle and wardrobe choices. This letter is to let you know that there’s nothing to worry about.
“Joel Osteen is defending the decision not to open his Houston megachurch as a shelter during the initial flooding from Harvey in the face of withering criticism on social media.” — New York Times, 8/30/171 There was once a man named Joel, who was much beloved And (by his own admission) supremely pious as well. 2 And one day, God looked upon the Earth, and He said unto Joel “Joel, you are my holiest of disciples and I require your assistance.”3-4 “In the coming days, there shall be a storm.
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".
