The Patriots are not out of the woods just yet. Tom Brady did not practice Thursday with the Patriots, a day after injuring his right throwing hand during an accidental collision in practice. Last year’s Super Bowl hero wore a glove on each hand and watched while his teammates prepared to face the Jaguars in the AFC championship game Sunday. Brady missed a team news conference for the second-straight day, likely to get more treatment on the hand. X-rays taken Wednesday showed no structural damage.
Kristaps Porzingis missed out on being named an Eastern Conference All-Star Game starter like a shot that circles the rim before falling to the court. The Knicks star lost out on the fifth spot to the 76ers’ Joel Embiid, after the voting results were announced Thursday evening for the All-Star Game to be held Feb. 18 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
The Giants’ “Wind” of the “Earth, Wind and Fire” running back trio of the mid-2000s has been accused of choking and threatening to kill his wife. Derrick Ward, who gave the Giants a formidable threat in the backfield with Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw from 2007-08, has reportedly been placed under a restraining order from his wife and children after his wife, Naomi Lee Allen-Ward, alleged he has become physically abusive toward her over the past year.
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".
