If you're looking for some inspiration to power you through this (short!) week, or if you just need yet another reason to love Serena Williams, this new video from Gatorade will likely do the trick. Narrating the commercial in a message to her baby daughter, the 23-time Grand Slam champion encourages Alexis to play sports because of the lessons they can teach and the impact they can have. "Sports will teach you the strength of your allies," she says in the ad.
By now you've probably played Taylor Swift's new album "Reputation" on loop for the last several hours, know all the words to every song and have developed elaborate theories for who each song is directed towards. We get it. And we were ready for it. (Groan.) Because we know today is basically Taylor Swift Day around the world, we desperately wanted to find a way we could get in on the fun as, you know, a sports website.
Ahead of the NextGen ATP Final in Milan, event organizers held a draw party on Sunday to reveal groups for the round-robin stage of the tournament, which features the top 21-and-under male singles players. The event was meant to reveal those groups in a celebratory way. Well, unfortunately those in charge of the soiree decided to turn what would otherwise be a pretty humdrum event into a completely sexist spectacle, which objectified female models. SIGH.
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".
