Six-time Olympic medalist Aly Raisman filed a civil lawsuit against the U.S. Olympic Committee and USA Gymnastics, claiming they “knew or should have known” about abuses committed by Larry Nassar under the guise of medical treatment. The lawsuit — that also names Nassar as a co-defendant — was filed Wednesday in California, according to The Associated Press. “I refuse to wait any longer for these organizations to do the right thing,” Raisman said in a statement.
In physics, speed is a scalar quantity. At the NFL Combine, speed seems to correlate with the scales. The lighter players — running backs, wide receivers and defensive backs — tend to be the fastest in the 40-yard dash. So let’s check out all of the 2018 lowest times at each position — and eventually overall. We’ll see if any of the prospects jockeying for position in the 2018 NFL Draft can best wide receiver John Ross’ record-setting time of 4.22 seconds from last year.
Hello, Olympics friends. This is it. Our time together has come to an end. The 2018 Winter Olympics are officially complete. The closing ceremony in Pyeongchang took place while you were probably sleeping. The Olympic flame is extinguished in South Korea. Presumably, our shirtless Tongan friend has put his shirt back on. We’ll always have the memories. Hopefully, the norovirus will work itself out. [Of course, don’t worry, you can still watch the closing ceremony on Sunday night in U.S. on NBC.]
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".
