Sleep well? Question: Did you doze off when the big trade for Trey Lyles was announced? Or was it at pick No. 24 when they picked Tyler Lydon? Me? I drifted off as soon as I saw Jimmy Butler’s name scroll across the bottom of the screen… followed by “traded to Minnesota.”Really? The 31-51 Timberwolves had more to offer the Bulls than Tim Connelly and Co.? Throughout the day, ESPN sent out “alert” after alert: Nuggets discussing trade for Eric Bledsoe! Nuggets talking to Chicago about Butler!
Got that tie picked out? That bottle of Old Spice? Tickets to the Rockies-Giants Game on Sunday? A bottle of bourbon, a tee time, I.O.U. camping trip or the appointment to repair the leak in the sprinkler system? Not yet? Well, get on it, Mr. (or Mrs.). Sunday is Father’s Day. And Dad doesn’t always send the reminder; that’s just not a “dad” thing to do.
Go ahead and beat the Cubs. Again. Remind the World Champs and their doting fans that what happened back in Denver was no fluke. Swiping two out of three from Chicago on a rain-soaked homestand looked big back in May. Taking three out of four in the Windy City would still be big now. Nobody wants to see the “W” fly over Wrigley. Keep that flag at the bottom of the pole. But also keep in mind there are Ws just around the corner that are far bigger than the ones to be gathered in Chicago this weekend.
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".
