If you make it to the US Senior Open this coming week at Salem Country Club, the field will have no shortage of big names to follow. The group includes pros such as Vijay Singh, John Daly, Colin Montgomerie, Tom Watson, Bernhard Langer (Bernin’ hot of late), and scores more of the sunset pitch ’n’ putt bunch. Oh, there’s also Chip Lutz, his game as healthy and secure as his perspective.
Oh, right, the NHL Draft. All but forgotten in the hubbub of the Stanley Cup finals, the Las Vegas expansion draft, and the NHL Awards — not to mention the ruckus around the Celtics flipping their No. 1 pick — the NHL will begin its two-day draft Friday night in Chicago. Keith Petruzzelli, a towering goalie from Wilbraham, and Reilly Walsh, a prototype puck-moving defenseman from North Falmouth, are the two top-ranked New Englanders in this year’s talent mixer.
Until he was crushed to death by a very angry elephant, Theunis Botha wasn’t widely known. He had, by all looks of things, a good life, with a wife, five children, and a business he founded some 30 years ago in South Africa as a safari leader and big game hunting guide. Then it all came to an end on the afternoon of Friday, May 19, when Botha and his small brigade of trophy hunters wandered across a pack of breeding elephants near the Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe.
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".
