Steed Lobotzke is sitting in his Air Force football office, talking about the thrills of leading his counter-culture offensive line. In a football world where bigger is seen as superior, Lobotzke preaches a radical message:Size fails to carry as much weight as diligence, brains and improvisation. “Big bodies just moving as a big body of flesh is not our game,” Lobotzke says with dead-on accuracy.
Organizers of the South Korea Winter Olympics face a viciously tough sales task as they seek to lure sports fans from across the world to the mountains of PyeongChang in February. Here's the pitch: Want to depart the comfort and relative safety of your home in Lisbon or Berlin or Cairo or Denver to spend two weeks in South Korea, where you will sleep each night a few dozen miles from the itchy bomb finger of North Korean dictator/madman Kim Jong-Un?
Air Force quarterback Arion Worthman has a simple wish for his football season. "God willing, I can stay healthy all year,” Worthman says a few minutes after finishing practice. A basic hope. And an unlikely one, too. Injury, sometime severe, is the norm for recent Air Force quarterbacks. In 2016, Worthman courageously, and recklessly, defied defenses on his way to leading the Falcons to six straight victories.
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".
