After nearly three months of Ashes pain Down Under Joe Root was able to sport a winning smile again as Jason Roy produced a record breaking 180 that steered his side to a morale boosting five wicket victory, and finally silenced those crowing Aussies. Cheeky billboards around these parts had taunted the tourists with a message reading : 'Why can't the Poms open wine? Because they don't have any openers!'
GETTYAntonio Conte made a 'square in the air' motionHe confronted the ever hapless fourth official and drew an imaginary ‘square in the air’ to plead for the referee to assess the incident against with a video replay.And so the curse of technology was launched into English football.The game will only suffer.In this instance, Martin Atkinson, the on-field ref in last week’s League Cup semi-final between Chelsea and Arsenal, had already decided to use the new VAR system.Replays confirmed his...
But just days after sickness cruelly knocked him out of the last Test in Sydney, England's skipper delivered a defiant message to his tormentors. Root told them: "Enjoy it for two years because we’ll be ready for you when you come to England." And he vowed to be "in a completely different place talking about a completely different story" when England return Down Under for another Ashes battle in four years time.
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".
