Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has outlined his desire for Neymar to remain with the club, but says his recent social media post declaring the Brazilian will 'stay' was just a gut feeling. Speaking in a club press conference in Washington, Pique reaffirmed his desire for Neymar to continue his football with the Catalan club, while team-mate Javier Mascherano admits the whole team have spoken to the player.
When he was a teenager, David Shury headed to the hockey rink on many occasions and skated on the ice not realizing how he really got there. A few years later, the truth came out. Tests showed he had a neurological disorder that ultimately would affect his mobility and speech. "It was similar to multiple sclerosis. He was probably in his early 20s when he diagnosed but the signs were there when he was younger,'' his widow Jane explained. Yet, he never took to complaining.
"Cutting the cord" has become a point of pride for some TV watchers. Streaming services like Netflix, and Hulu have challenged longtime monopoly, offering both traditional and original TV programming and the ability to access it from a variety of devices, all for low monthly subscription fees. Last week, a new digital TV competitor entered the fray. Google announced the launch of YouTube TV in 10 new markets, including Dallas, according to the official YouTube blog.
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".
