We're still two months away from the start of the NBA season, but we already know what the biggest storyline of 2017-18 will be: Will LeBron James leave Cleveland again? Every time the Cavaliers go on a losing streak, or LeBron gets into a tiff with a teammate or the coaching staff, the questions will arise once again.
Last week, UFC president Dana White released video of Conor McGregor sparring with former welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi in advance of his upcoming bout with Floyd Mayweather. And on first glance, McGregor looks pretty impressive. The highly anticipated fight -- you can order Mayweather vs. McGregor on Showtime PPV -- is set for Aug. 26, and the UFC champion at least has the look of a boxer in the ring.
There's no doubt that the fight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather is going to be huge, and if you ask UFC president Dana White, it's also going to be record-setting. White was confident as he fielded questions for the fight -- you can order Mayweather vs. McGregor on Showtime PPV -- during a conference call on Wednesday, saying that he thinks the fight will generate well over the Las Vegas line of 4.9 million pay-per-view buys. "This is the biggest fight ever.
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".
