Thursday night 60 dreams came true at the 2017 NBA Draft. The annual tradition of seeing athletes accomplish their goals is special, as it's truly a night of celebration. The NBA Draft is one in which a lot of casual fans tune in to find out what college kid, or international transplant, their favorite team has added to their roster. With that comes comparisons. It's a way for analysts and writers to give casual fans an idea of who a player could be, or a description of who their game resembles.
The National Rifle Association of America is an organization that advocates for gun rights. But only if you're white. Because if the NRA cared about black people, the dashboard video footage of Philando Castile's murder would have them up in arms. No pun intended. The NRA’s silence on the Philando Castile verdict is deafening"Sir, I have to tell you, I do have a firearm on me."
According to reports by Lithuanian basketball writers Simonas Baranauskas and Donatas Urbonas, Gedvydas Vainauskas is out as BC Lietuvos Rytas’ president. Vainauskas came under fire recently for making some Donald Sterling-like comments when he said that his teams shouldn’t have more than two Black players on them because it can lead to gangs being formed. The National Basketball Players Association released a statement on the situation on Tuesday.
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".
