CHASKA, Minn. - It was time for the U.S. Ryder Cup team picture to be taken and Tiger Woods wasn't exactly sure where to stand. He found a spot at the end of the back row, but wasn't there long before the photographer motioned for him to move.
MINNEAPOLIS - A moment of silence and the U.S. flag flying at half-mast were never supposed to be part of the prelude to the 2016 Ryder Cup. But when the great Arnold Palmer died Sunday at the age of 87, one of the world's most intense international sports competitions abruptly and appropriately took on a mournful and reflective refrain.
Nearly a month into the national anthem protests that continue to spring up across our sports landscape, it's natural to wonder how we'll someday measure the success or failure of what Colin Kaepernick started. Is the ensuing national conversation about social inequality and violence in our cities a victory in itself?
Enlarge this image Week two of the NFL season is now complete, and what once would have been unimaginable is now becoming commonplace. I'm talking about protests - player protests - visible, controversial, much-talked-about displays during the playing of the national anthem, before NFL games, in stadiums, around the country.

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
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".
