Once in a while when handicapping the NFL, some games just scream lock of the day. While New England has been plagued by injuries, especially at wide receiver, making the Patriots one of my key picks last week was an easy call. New England was coming off an embarrassing first-week loss to Kansas City and had a few extra days to prepare for a defensively-challenged New Orleans team.
MADSION — Whenever FCIAC power Darien and SCC power Hand get together, strong defensive efforts from both teams usually is a given. The Blue Wave and Tigers took it to another level on Saturday. Hand goalie Kylie Gargiulo had eight saves and the Tigers forced the Blue Wave to go 0-for-12 on penalty corners, while Darien goalie Erica Blaze had five saves, including on a penalty stroke, as the teams played to a scoreless tie at Hand High.
Betting the NFL: Three teams poised to bounce back in Week 2When it comes to handicapping, the advantage of Week 2 is that there is a full slate of games to digest from Week 1. The teams to focus on today are New England and Seattle, two teams coming off bad losses, and Arizona, which takes on the Andrew Luck-less Indianapolis Colts. The Patriots, 42-27 losers to Kansas City in Week 1, travel to New Orleans and are banged up on both sides of the ball.
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".
