LeBron James carried the Cavaliers back to the NBA Finals. Kevin Durant’s first season with the Warriors ended with a championship ring and postseason MVP status. But when the league holds its first-ever NBA Awards show Monday night, neither will be in the running for regular season MVP consideration. Instead, finalists James Harden, Russell Westbrook, and Kawhi Leonard will each wait to see if they’ve earned the game’s highest honor.
Bill Belichick doesn’t lose often, but when he does it generates enough schadenfreude to feed a nation. Belichick and the New England Patriots are in the middle of the most successful run of all time, winning five Super Bowls (and playing in two more) in the coach’s 17-year tenure. New England and all-world quarterback Tom Brady hasn’t missed an AFC Championship since 2010. After one of the most talked-about offseasons in franchise history, this upcoming season is likely to keep that streak alive.
Vanderbilt football may be without the services of a pair of young players this summer. Tae Daley, a freshman defensive back, and Frank Coppet, a redshirt freshman in the same secondary, suffered non-life threatening gunshot wounds after reportedly attempting to retrieve the stolen phone of teammate Donaven Tennyson. Daley was shot in the leg, while Coppet was struck with birdshot in his arms. Daley also had his car stolen in the altercation. The shooting took place Monday night.
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".
