If you sit down and try to recall the last time Buzz Pirates started the league campaign as title favourites, it will have to be the 2009 season. Then they choked with two games left as they succumbed to defeat against eventual champions Hima Cement Heathens to finishing second. Eight years on today, the Sea Robbers are once again enjoying the plaudits of kicking off as favourites if recent developments are anything to go by.
Uganda Rugby Union (URU) and Nile Special have confirmed a partnership in which the latter will avail Shs 300m for the smooth running of the 18-week Nile Special Premiership, which kicks off today. The deal will be welcomed by league stakeholders as a major boost since it doubles what the brewers tabled for the 2016/2017 campaign. Half of the sponsorship package will come in cash while the rest will cover game day activations like Man of the Match awards and publicity.
KAMPALA. As clubs take rests after another grueling Uganda Cup campaign, the Uganda Rugby Union (URU) has released the 2017/2018 Rugby Premiership schedules with the league confirmed to kick off on November 18. Within 10 days, all the 10 clubs should have shaken off the rust from the break as the highly anticipated league kicks off in four different venues on the opening day.
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".
