What I REID Into It: November 18, 2017 Just about everyone enjoys having seconds. Whether it's a second trip through a buffet line, a second show of their favorite artist or a second chance at a job interview, having seconds are a good thing. The Kansas City Chiefs certainly enjoyed the first half of the 2017 NFL season by going 6-3 and leading the AFC West Division by 2 games. Now the second half of the season begins with the Chiefs looking for more of what they saw in the 1st half.
A national champion in college, and now here in Missouri pursuing a professional championship, is Mavericks newcomer Alex Brooks. A right-handed defenseman, Brooks won a NCAA D-III national championship while a senior at Wisconsin Stevens-Point in 2016. Brooksy, as his new teammates call him, is now in his 2nd year of pro hockey, having played last season with Fayetteville of the Southern Pro Hockey League. Count Mavericks Head Coach John Scott-Dickson as among those glad Brooks is here.
A name that Mavericks fans will want to watch for is Forward Mike McMurtry. The newcomer already has more AHL experience than performing on the ECHL level. Mike began his pro career last season with the Texas Stars. Murch, as his new teammates call him, is 25 years old and ready to return to the AHL level as he continues his career in the Calgary Flames system. Mike's favorite Sports team is the NFL's Detroit Lions. As a youth, attending Lions games was a family tradition.
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".
