Trade SNH on Easy EquitiesJOHANNESBURG — In the week that the Steinhoff financial scandal broke, the South African Sevens team, with the Steinhoff name emblazoned on the players’ jerseys, was in action in the Cape Town leg of the World Sevens Series. The result was disappointing for the team – beaten in the semi-finals by New Zealand and finishing the tournament in third place. The connection between the team’s misfortune and Steinhoff’s demise was an easy one to make.
JOHANNESBURG — The insurance company Brightrock has quickly established itself as a brand synonymous with rugby. In January 2016, Brightrock signed an associate sponsorship deal with the Stormers and Western Province. This year it partnered with MyPlayers to establish the Brightrock Players Choice Awards which recognises players’ excellence. What makes these awards unique is that the players themselves are involved in nominating and voting for the winners.
CAPE TOWN — For the second year in a row, the Blitzboks have suffered a major blow through injury at the Cape Town Sevens. This year it’s Chris Dry who’s out for the season. Last year, it was Kyle Brown who tore his cruciate ligaments in the semi-final and missed the rest of the season. In fact, coach Neil Powell had a number of injury worries in 2016/17 with Justin Geduld, Stephan Dippenaar and Rosko Specman all missing for varying lengths of time.
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".
