Four months is left before the Lions, winless for a year for the first time since 1992, play their final Asian Cup qualifier at Chinese Taipei in March. Four months is ideally what V. Sundram Moorthy has left to prove he can glue Singapore's football reputation back together. Four months is what the coach, whose contract expires in March 2019, should have left to find a win. Else it will be time to go. Four months is so short a time that even Sundram understands the urgency for change.
The numerous changes to their playing roster and absence of key players took a toll on the Singapore Slingers, as they were routed 83-59 by Kung Fu Basketball Club in last night's curtain-raiser to the new Asean Basketball League season. The match was delayed by 15 minutes as China's basketball association declined to approve the registration of the club, and as such Nanhai had to be dropped as a prefix from their original name, although that did not distract the hosts.
Missing key players such as Mitchell Folkoff, Leon Kwek and Larry Liew, the Singapore Slingers proved they are still a work in progress when they were routed 83-59 by Kung Fu Basketball Club in the Asean Basketball League (ABL) opener last night. The match was delayed by 15 minutes as China's basketball association did not approve of the hosts' registration. As such, Nanhai had to be dropped as a prefix from their original name, although that did not distract the home team.
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".
