CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Practice matters, especially when you were bad in the games. So for the 1-15 Cleveland Browns, the recently completed practices at OTAs and minicamp were something. They were the start of something. They were the start of second-year coach Hue Jackson trying to figure out what he has while the Browns try to figure out who they are. When you don't have a quarterback and some of your best players are your three first-round draft picks, yeah, every practice matters, Bud.
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- You have this month to think about it, to determine the players you're looking to as those who will determine the fate of the Browns this season. But we can't just talk about Cody Kessler, DeShone Kizer and Brock Osweiler. So when Hue Jackson was asked for an overview of the Browns at the end of minicamp and launched into another speech on how this team needs to settle the quarterback situation, he was giving praise to a lot of other positions.
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Who knew the trade season for the Cavs would look like this? The team now without a general manager with the departure of David Griffin still has some pieces that could be dealt to reshape this roster, as long as the Cavs have someone to do the dealing. The Kevin Love for Paul George talk is out there, and it was the most popular trade scenario presented by readers after we asked for ideas. But Love isn't the only option. And there are some fans who don't want to trade him.
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".
