Shane McClanahan made 15 starts for the University of South Florida in 2017. Posting an ERA of 3.20, he struck out 104 batters in 74 innings, an American Conference-leading 12.32 per nine innings. Opponents hit .181 against him. All impressive stats, but his talent suggests there is more to be seen and enjoyed in 2018.
Over the past two weekends, I joined friends ringing a red bell for the Salvation Army. When the friends’ elbows gave out and the Central Coast chill got too much for them, I stayed in place as the pale sun departed, as darkness descended. Trilling the tiny bell. Repeating a liturgy of Merry Christmases, as busy shoppers hurried by balancing packages as they dug out coins from purses or pockets to drop in the kettle. For I was hungry ... I was a stranger ... in prison ...
The New Rule for Search-Driven TaxonomiesThe benefits of the KISS taxonomy approach are:Broader is better, and we want this to be fast and iterative, and not a three year project. There is one new rule we are going to add before we start building out levels in our hierarchy. The rule is that every term label must have two terms. So, as an example, you can never create a traditional taxonomy that might look like this: In a KISS taxonomy, you must use two words to describe your term label.
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".
