Every game is just another game, but it’s also the most important game, which is to say it’s the only game, and therefore should be exclusively focused on. And then forgotten. That’s coach-speak. And it’s effective coach-speak; tried and true. No one follows – or writes – the rules better than Bill Belichick of the New England Patriots. (Well, maybe Alabama’s Nick Saban, who can make Mercer sound like the Packers.) Belichick sticks with the plan though and it has won him five Super Bowls.
LANSING, Mich. — Two decades after she first spoke up about Dr. Larry Nassar, two decades after she told a Michigan State gymnastics coach about treatment that felt more like sexual assault than a medical procedure, Larissa Boyce stood in a courtroom not far from the sprawling Big Ten campus. This was late November and Nassar was there to plead guilty to seven counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.
Prienai is a picturesque little town in southern Lithuania, tucked along the banks of the Neman River, surrounded by plush forests and … oh, forget it. The Ball family doesn’t care much about scenery, or the way the bridge lights up each evening or how locals played an active role in gaining independence from the Russians a couple decades back. No, LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball are headed to Prienai because there is hardly anywhere else to go, at least when it comes to basketball. LiAngelo quit UCLA.
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".
