It wasn’t as satisfying as Cersei Lannister’s naked stroll through King’s Landing, but then Game of Thrones always has been more concerned with corruption than Congress has. Smith testified about Equifax’s failure to apply a software patch, allowing hackers to make off with the credit information of 40 percent of the U.S. population.

Alice Cooper came back to Detroit in 1970 seeking a fresh start on the heels of his band's second unsuccessful album, Easy Action. The theatrical hard rocker, born Vincent Furnier, was a Motor City kid until age 10 when his troublesome asthma prompted the family to move to Phoenix. He returned a dozen years later in search of sympathetic ears. "We felt out of place everywhere on this planet except Detroit," says Cooper, from his Phoenix home.
Finally, there's the fact that this is a team full of veterans. What's the excuse for not telling them to put on their big boy pants and figure out how to play when LeBron's off the floor. (Indeed, the on/offs are much better with this deeper team.)
To James' credit, he bounced back and has played amazing at the end of the year. But I can't help but wonder if overplaying James in pointless regular season games is Thibodeau-ing the best athlete of our generation.
Two of the last three years LeBron has suffered through a preseason injury. Two years ago it was his back. This year it was his ankle. View them as isolated events if you please, but thems the signs of an immaculate system enduring its own inevitable entropy.
@tamcfall Has Popovich EVER played his starters 75% of what Lue asks of James? Pop's always had a very long bench, and finds ways for his players to contribute. Always admired that. But I'm not even talking that, I'm saying get James our of top 20 in MPG.
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".
