With the passing of time, many of us inherit many of our parents’ mannerisms, and enjoyment of things we would never have admitted to in our youth. I am now at the age where I can happily say I enjoy the placid circumlocutory of RTÉ Radio 1, so beloved by my father. There’s one show I listen to every week from Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, where I now live, and that is Sunday Sport. The programme is especially good during the GAA season, most of all for the all-Ireland hurling championship series.
The Eagles’ trade of Matt Tobin to Seattle was surprising when you consider that their top backups at offensive tackle now consist of a former fifth-round pick who struggled mightily last season (Halapoulavaati Vaitai), a converted tight end who went undrafted in 2016 (Dillon Gordon), and a converted defensive end who is in his first year on the offensive line (Taylor Hart). The negligible nature of the return suggests they viewed him as taking up a roster spot that they needed for somebody else.
He understands the issue. That’s one thing you can say about Wendell Smallwood. It’s too soon to render any definitive judgments on his injury woes, but the second-year running back is well aware that a football team’s patience comes with an expiration date. “I definitely think it’s a big year for me,” he said after Monday’s joint practice session with the Dolphins.
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".
