One can only imagine what it must feel like to have been a co-founder of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), launched in 1993, sold for just $2 million in 2001 and then sold again in 2016 for $4 billion. Campbell McLaren can speak to it. He created and executive produced the first 22 UFC pay-per-view events dating back to 1993. And McLaren is interestingly not done trying to re-imagine and innovate the sport of fighting and mixed martial arts (MMA).
Before Matt McGraw, CEO of Dispatch Labs launched his latest blockchain venture, he was certain he was done with technology companies. Effectively retired after selling his previous company, Rocket Science, McGraw was ready to slow down and enjoy being a full time dad to six kids. In addition to the allure of a quieter family life, McGraw had also grown disenchanted with the tech space because he felt it had lost any sense of innovation.
Apparel and shoe creator adidas has come out with its final numbers for 2017, which show the company (made up of adidas' own brand and Reebok) being up 31% in Q4 2017 and up 27% in the calendar year 2017 overall. What stands out the most is that brand adidas experienced double-digit sales increases in the ultra important running category as well as at adidas Originals and adidas neo.
Wish I had video of the sports bar exploding at @AriaLV on Loyola buzzer beater. Got them in-game +5.5.
But biggest bet of trip is on Ohio State in game at -1.5! And Kentucky + Florida still to come. March is the best.
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".
