Olympic gold is often an athlete’s main career objective and can kick start a pursuit in the professional game, making boxing in Olympics 2016 all the more of a motivation for many fighters looking to turn pro after this year’s games. Recent Gold medallists have gone on to achieve superstar status in the paid ranks with Anthony Joshua and Vasyl Lomachenko paving the way in recent times.
A boxing career is not long, the toll of relentless training, years of brutal weight cutting and the physical effects of taking shots push the body to its limits. There are easier ways to make a living but for a rare few the stars align with careers extending past 40. The speed and punch resistance may go but this can be compensated with guile and ring craft. With advances in sports nutrition and easier access to world-class training methods, the average fighters career can be extended.
SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) — It’s had almost eight years to enjoy the spotlight as one of the great initial public offering investments in Silicon Valley history. Now Google Inc., like everybody else, waits for next month’s Facebook IPO to see if history will repeat itself. But Google GOOG, +0.10% didn’t get where it is without being hypercompetitive. It has one more chance to steal the spotlight Thursday, when it reports first quarter earnings after the market closes.
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".
