I knew I should have eaten that bowl of beet noodles with Romanesco and hazelnut hemp seed crumble. That’s one of the painfully healthy dishes Tom Brady lauds in his new book "The TB12 Method: How to Achieve a Lifetime of Sustained Peak Performance.”But there I was Saturday, chomping on a McDonald’s sausage, egg and cheese biscuit as I drove down Interstate 4 to my date with basketball destiny. The Magic’s new G-League team in Lakeland was having open tryouts.
The CTE made him do it. That’s the charge leveled Thursday in a federal lawsuit filed by the family of Aaron Hernandez. Chronic traumatic encephalopathy is what turned him into a homicidal maniac. I’m no doctor, but you don’t have to be a doctor to know CTE is a devastating mental condition. You also don’t have to be a doctor to smell a money grab. The amount here is $20 million, and the defendants are the Patriots and the NFL.
If you wanted to grab Dwight Howard by the lapel six years ago and shake some sense into him, take heart. He knows you were right. That realization has arrived too late to save Orlando from basketball misery and rescue Howard's reputation. But knowing he is haunted by a ghost wearing a Magic jersey might bring you a little I-Told-You-So satisfaction. "In a lot of ways," Howard said, "I feel like I never recovered."
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".
