During a press junket for the new "Entourage" movie, Ronda Rousey was asked by "Access Hollywood" about fighting Floyd Mayweather. Rather than talking about throwing a punch, the UFC star threw some serious shade instead. "Well, I will never say that I can't beat anyone," Rousey said. "I don't think that me and him would ever fight unless we ended up dating." Mayweather, of course, has a documented history of domestic violence.
On a winter night in early 2015, comedians and roommates Viviana Rosales Olen and Matt Harkins were eating snacks and flipping through Netflix when they stumbled upon "Price of Gold," an ESPN 30 for 30 documentary. The doc examined figure skater Tonya Harding's involvement with the knee-clubbing of competitor Nancy Kerrigan leading up to the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway.
A teenage Sloane Stephens shocked the world in 2013, when she beat Serena Williams in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open. Since then, Williams has gone on to win eight Grand Slam titles, breaking the record for most in the Open era, and has had a baby. Stephens ... well, she has won a few tournaments and had some moderate success, but overall, she hasn't exactly lived up to the immense hype she earned from her time in Melbourne.
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".
