IT'S TIME to put the hooligan label in the discard pile in the vast recesses of my co-worker's sarcastic brain. He has been using that moniker in jest for close to three decades to describe the grade-school soccer players I coach. Now that I'm finally hanging up the broken whistle, it must be stressed that there has never been evidence of hooliganism among those fine, young seventh- and eighth-grade boys from St. Martha school in Northeast Philadelphia.
EVEN THE most self-absorbed will look up from their cellphones, gaze at the color overload and listen to the speedy chatter of nervous energy. Entering Franklin Field during the Penn Relays freezes the quick in your step. Vibrant swaths of yellow and red and blue and green glow with sweat in the spring air, thick with hope.
Trump said Time magazine was probably going to name him Man of the Year but he had to agree to interview and photo shoot and the prez said probably wasn't good enough so he passed. Wow. Same thing happened to me. Probably.
Reading a book on Willie Sutton and, guess what, he didn't say he robbed banks because that's where the money is. He said he did it cause he enjoyed it. He admitted he went along with the classic line after a reporter made it up. Fake news. Sad. Believe me. Hey, stocks are up.
Two more accusations of Al Franken grabbing women's butts. When it gets to double figures let's call the inappropriate act a Franken, make it a a fine in states except Alabama where it's a mall ban. Also, only let women run for office. Would that be so bad? They have more class.
Two more accusations of Al Franken grabbing women's butts. When it gets to double figures they will be calling the inappropriate act a Franken and it will be at least a fine in some states. Not Alabama though.
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".
