ESPN NFL draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. had great things to say Wednesday about Notre Dame All-American offensive lineman Quenton Nelson, but in his very early assessment, he doesn’t necessarily think the guard will go to the Bears with the No. 8 pick. After the release of his Mock Draft 2.0 on Wednesday, Kiper did a conference call with reporters to talk about his impressions of prospects as next week’s NFL combine draws near.
Cubs and White Sox pitchers and catchers report to spring training this week after three-plus months of downtime. Certainly, the players spent some of the offseason whipping themselves into the best shape of their lives. But they also took some time for vacations, family and milestones. Here’s what they shared via social media as we all waited for baseball to return.
The Bears will play the Ravens in the Pro Football Hall of Fame game Aug. 2 in Canton, Ohio, the NFL announced Tuesday. The team’s first exhibition game under new head coach Matt Nagy will be played at 7 p.m. at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium. The game is part of Hall of Fame weekend in Canton, and the Bears and Ravens were chosen to participate as their former middle linebackers Brian Urlacher and Ray Lewis will be enshrined in the Hall. That ceremony takes place on Aug. 4.
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".
