If you thought Lonzo Ball’s “ZO2: Prime” shoes were the only pair of sneakers to be released by the Big Baller Brand, guess again. The former UCLA star and new Laker released a second colorway of his “ZO2” sneaker just after he was drafted by the Lakers in Thursday’s NBA draft. The pair of sneakers is called “ZO2: SHO’TIME.”The shoes feature the same outline and design as the first pair of Big Baller Brand sneakers, but the new pairs are splashed with the purple and gold Lakers colors.
Mr. Met may have just three fingers and a thumb, but he got his point across. The New York Mets’ oversized baseball-head mascot flashed his middle finger to fans during the team’s 7-1 loss on Wednesday night to the Milwaukee Brewers. The incident was recorded by a fan on a cellphone and went viral on social media. A Mets official told the Associated Press that more than one person wears the Mr. Met costume during the season, and the person who wore it Wednesday night will not do so again.
It’s that time of year when students are frantically studying (or cramming) for their final exams. It’s probably one of the most stressful times in the school year. But one Indiana high school senior sought help from an unlikely source to get his entire class out of a final exam. Prior to the test, William Pate and his teacher made a deal in which his entire class would be pardoned from taking the exam if Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant retweeted the following tweet. They say it never hurts to ask.
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".
