Dikemebe Mutombo is one of the greatest shot-blockers of all time. He won the NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award four times and was also an eight-time all-star. However, in retirement after his 18-year Hall of Fame career, Mutombo is on the offensive about how great of a basketball market Canada has become. “I love it here. It is a beautiful country (that) loves the game I love dearly,” Mutombo told Sportsnet.
Who gets the table? That is a litmus test I often use when I am trying to evaluate someone’s star power. Some use Q Rating. Others use Twitter followers, or net worth. My metric is simple: If two people — or more accurately two celebrities — show up at the hottest restaurant at the same time and there is one table left (let’s make it a chef’s table just for fun), who gets it? Who has more juice? So for example in Toronto Michael Clemons gets the table over Doug Flutie.
CULVER CITY, Calif. — Many believed the most significant difference in the NBA’s new 2017-18 uniforms would be the fact sponsor and outfit logos would be displayed on the front for the first time ever. As it turns out, however, that was just a footnote when compared to what these puppies really have in store. Most jersey launches are press conferences with designers regaling about techs and specs.
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".
