John Herdman, coach of Canada’s women’s national soccer team, was blue-skying the future over the phone from Vancouver the other day. The year, in this particular aspirational dream sequence, will be 2020. The song will be “O Canada,” played in Tokyo with Canadian players draped in Olympic gold. The world ranking will be No. 1, as prophesied by captain Christine Sinclair way back in 2017. And in that moment, Herdman will wave goodbye after nine years at the helm of the squad.
Some among this exclusive roll call are famous — among them Tim Duncan, whose San Antonio Spurs won five championships; Maurice Richard, whose 1950s Montreal Canadiens won five straight Stanley Cups; Bill Russell, whose Boston Celtics won 11 championships in 13 seasons; and Yogi Berra, the glue-guy catcher of five World Series winners for the New York Yankees. But many of them are not well known.
The Thai 21-year-old’s victory — her first of 2017 after winning five times in 2016 — will also almost certainly see her supplant New Zealand’s Lydia Ko as world No. 1 when the rankings are released Monday. We say “almost certainly” because the folks who preside over the rankings projected Jutanugarn would overtake Ko a week ago, only to acknowledge a snafu in the calculations that meant Ko actually retained her hold on top spot.
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".
