It's been a pretty quiet offseason for the Toronto Blue Jays. They certainly have gotten stronger in the middle of the infield, trading for All-Star shortstop Aledmys Diaz and veteran second baseman Yangervis Solarte. Now, they're focusing on keeping the talent they already have on the roster in the North. The Blue Jays have avoided arbitration and agreed to a deal with reliever Aaron Loup. Not exactly the move that moves the radar, but it was still smart of Toronto to keep Loup in-house.
If you really want to make a difference, sometimes you have to give the people what they want. Normally a celebrity appearance is enough at a charity event. You shake some hands, take some pictures, maybe sign an autograph or two, and that's enough. In this instance, it's a bit different since it was Anthony Rizzo's foundation holding the event. In order to make sure everyone was having a good time, Rizzo raised the bar and decided to flex the golden pipes.
Heading into their divisional round matchup against the Atlanta Falcons, the Eagles received some good news about one of their top players. No, Carson Wentz did not magically heal in time for Saturday, but this news will help Philadelphia in the future. Linebacker Nigel Bradham officially had his aggravated battery charges from October dropped. It's been a huge turnaround for the Eagles this season, and an equally large change for Bradham with his off-the-field issues.
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".
