Sharing pics of whatever you're doing is so commonplace it feels mandatory. Instagram is littered with both dull minutiae and jealousy-inducing travel porn that makes you wish you were anywhere but at work. All that humblebragging raises the question: What's the most Instagrammed place on Earth? What's the trip that people can't stop themselves from telling everyone about?
Video game nostalgia is intense. Retailers could barely keep NES Classics in stock around the holidays. Sega understands your childlike need for uncut nostalgia acquired without spending months at garage sales hunting down that perfect royal blue Game Gear. The company has announced the launch of Sega Forever, which is basically a lineup of classic games being rolled out for iOS and Android. With Thursday's launch, Sega has released five games for free, though you have to pay $1.99 to remove ads.
The first roster announcements for the 2016 World Cup of Hockey are coming on Mar. 2, when teams have to announce the first 16 players for their roster, including two goaltenders. Below I make projections for the Canada World Cup Roster, including the 16 players to be named first, who are marked in bold. Canada’s forward group is difficult to pick because there is a good handful of guys it’s tough to imagine not getting on the roster.
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".
