G oogle Maps says it requires a shade over 18 hours to drive the 1,208 miles from the Texans' Methodist Training Center on Kirby Drive to their new training camp home at The Greenbrier, in White Sulfur Springs, W. Va. The far-afield, nearly month-long detour to the east, however, is intended to lay the necessary groundwork for an almost equidistant - 1,178 miles, 17½ hours by car - trip north to Minneapolis in early February.
Overall score: 18.9 (8.9 for quality, 10 for value)Our tasters: Gave it a unanimous recommendation with three scores of 9 or higher. "Earthy and tart. Well-balanced, structured." My score: 9.1 "Enticing array of fruit flavors. Gorgeous." Winery/vineyards: Bill Spence and his older brother Ross grew up in the business - a grandfather and their father were both winemakers - launching Matua out of a shabby tin shed in West Auckland, New Zealand, in 1974.
We’ve lost our minds, right? We’re saying a guy, Dallas Keuchel, who hasn’t practiced his craft in 42 days, reigns as the single most pivotal person in Houston’s blessedly ascendant sports firmament in a summer when no fewer than six of his Astros teammates earned invites to the All-Star Game? And this a year after we ordained a total newcomer, a gangly young man with a modest résumé who had yet to flex a muscle on the city’s behalf, as our top dog for 2016?
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".
