Jim Mora’s job status should not be in doubt this week as UCLA gets ready to face USC in the best crosstown rivalry in college football Nov. 18 at the Coliseum. Kickoff is at 5 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on KABC Channel 7. The 5-5 Bruins are one win away from being bowl eligible. If they lose to USC, they have one more chance to clinch a bowl berth Nov. 25 against Cal.
Who are these guys? You see them on television wearing the blue and gold helmets. They look like the Rams but they don’t play like the Rams. Well, they don’t play like last year’s Rams. This team scores touchdowns. In bunches. And plays defense. With a 51-17 victory over the New York Giants Nov. 5, the Rams moved into first place all by themselves in the NFC West with a 6-2 record. Halfway through the season, the Rams have scored 263 points, more than they scored in 16 games last season.
The Dodgers returned to the World Series Oct. 24 for the first time in 29 years, defeating the Houston Astros, 3-1, in a series opener that had a little bit of everything except scoring. Lefthanders Clayton Kershaw and Dallas Keuchel squared off in an old-fashioned pitcher’s duel that took only 2 hours and 28 minutes to complete. If Commissioner Rob Manfred wants to shorten baseball games, that’s the way to do it. Put great pitchers on the mound and watch them operate.
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".
