A significant bypass today over to women’s tennis, and to an issue that keeps haunting the tour: Why does the legendary Margaret Court insist on doing harm to the sport she once dominated? Court, now a Pentecostal minister in Australia, has been in the news again lately for attacking gay and transgender people, a regular habit of hers. She recently announced a personal boycott of Qantas airlines, “whenever possible,” because of that company’s support of same-sex marriage.
Finally, sitting in a Scranton hotel room on Wednesday night, he got the call from Manager Joe Girardi, and a day later he was in Flushing and in the starting lineup. Thursday’s game would be only his 36th in two seasons with the Yankees, despite his ranking as one of the club’s top infield prospects for years. “It was all very strange,” Austin, 25, said of his season. “One fluke injury makes for a long year.
You may have heard the startling news, and immediately felt terrible for the poor fellow: Cristiano Ronaldo has been fined 3805 euros, or about $4500, by the Spanish soccer federation for shoving referee Ricardo de Burgos Bengoetxea in a Spanish Super Cup match against Barcelona. Where will Ronaldo get the money to pay such a steep fine? From his contract with Real Madrid, which pays him about $50 million a year, including bonuses, through 2021 (if he doesn’t renegotiate)?
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".
