Before the World Series titles, before beating the Yankees, before being a National League MVP and all-star shortstop, there was Duke basketball for Dick Groat. “I was a better basketball player than I ever was a baseball player,” Groat said. “Basketball was always my first love.” At 87, Groat has a lifetime of memories, sharing a few Saturday before Duke’s ACC game against Pittsburgh.
On a Carolina Hurricanes team generally lacking physicality, and now lacking injured forward Sebastian Aho, Elias Lindholm feels the need to make things happen on the ice. “He does play with a bit of an edge to him,” teammate Lee Stempniak said Monday. A bit? There are times when Lindholm comes over the boards and there’s a sense the Swedish forward is about to quickly shake things up. That happened late in the first period Sunday against the Vegas Golden Knights.
Defenseman Brett Pesce is hurt. Center Derek Ryan is hurt. After Sunday’s game against the Calgary Flames, winger Sebastian Aho is hurt, too. Then there’s the flu. Several Carolina Hurricanes players have been slowed recently by some kind of illness sweeping through the locker room. If ever there was a good time for time off, that time is now for the Canes. And they’re getting it, with the next five days free for their NHL mandated bye week.
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".
