Imagine getting a call on your wedding day only to learn you've been fired? Julian Stanford, a lively legged, hard-hitting inside linebacker and core special teams' player with the New York Jets who hails from Bloomfield doesn't have to imagine, because it happened to him. It was April 14. Stanford and his new bride, Tiffany, were deep into the ceremony at Aria, the picturesque reception venue in Prospect, when Stanford's agent, Ty Barnes, pulled him aside.
There is no quarterback controversy to settle at Yale this year. That's because Kurt Rawlings earned it at the end of a season that ended on one of the few high notes of the season, a 21-14 win over Harvard, spoiling its chances of at least a piece of the Ivy League championship. "Kurt Rawlings is our starter," Yale's Tony Reno said Tuesday on the Ivy League coaches' teleconference. "He's earned the job through his performance at the end of the season and in the spring."
Alexia Douglas is a junior college transfer who has had just a handful of NCAA-allowed practices over the summer with the University of Hartford. Yet on this Thursday, with temperatures above 90 degrees outside, the 5-foot-7 Douglas was turning up the heat inside. She was loud, animated, intense and looked comfortable running the offense in a scrimmage.
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".
