LeBron James, named MVP of the NBA All-Star Game, urged the league to pump the brakes when it comes to potential changes to the playoffs. This follows an All-Star Game played in a reimagined format that seemed to reinvigorate the February Festivities. But James said, ” It’s cool to mess around with the All-Star Game — we proved you can do that — but let’s not get too crazy about the playoffs. You have Eastern Conference and you have Western Conference.
The New England Patriots were not able to win their sixth Lombardi trophy in 2017. But ESPN writes that the path back shouldn’t be difficult. They put together a list of how the Patriots could get back to the Super Bowl, as well as other offseason moves to improve each AFC East team. First of all, the Pats need to pick up the fifth-year option for Malcolm Brown. He has been a three-year starter for New England and serves as a valuable part of their rotation on the interior.
Could A Wrinkle in Time dethrone Disney-Marvel’s blockbuster Black Panther from the top spot at the box office? Potentially. It looks like the time-travel fantasy is the logical candidate to do so in three weeks, during the March 9-11 weekend. Black Panther could take in as much as $100 million during the upcoming weekend (Feb. 23-25) and it is likely to continue to lead during the March 2-4 timeframe.
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".
