Houston's own Nneka Ogwumike stands at the center of everything the Sparks do. The Houston professional athlete who gets nude for ESPN in the sports goliath’s latest Body Issue is not Internet famous. She doesn’t regularly scream for attention. She’s not angling to be in J.J. Watt’s Instagram orbit. She’s just one of the best basketball players on earth — and a Stanford graduate who regularly earned all-academic honors. You could even call Nneka Ogwumike a nerd. Go ahead.
Chris Paul's most important role with the Houston Rockets just may be how his yelling impacts James Harden. Paul will demand more. James Harden finally has an angel looking over his shoulder. OK, it may not be an angel. This will be snarling, screaming force that’s often in his face. Chris Paul is coming — and Harden will no doubt often think Paul’s the devil. And that’s a beautiful thing.
Jim Parsons is a big of a TV star as the Friends cast ever was thanks to Big Bang Theory. But you'd never know it. Jim Parsons has often brought his mom Judy to some of his biggest moments. Jim Parsons is one of those rare celebrities who never seems to forget what it’s like to be a normal person. Even as Parsons pulls in $1 million per episode for the Big Bang Theory and draws critical acclaim for high-profile side projects, he never strays into diva territory.
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".
