In the summer of 2013, the appetite for professional basketball in the city of Philadelphia was at a point that few could have imagined during the days when Wilt or Dr. J or Allen Iverson plied their trade on the local hardwood. More than a decade had passed since the 76ers’ last championship game appearance, and they’d spent most of the intervening years trapped in a vicious cycle: good enough to compete for the playoffs, not good enough to win once they got there.
Carson Wentz had a choice to make, and you kinda had the feeling which one he was going to choose. Rolling out to his right on a second-and-goal play from the Panthers’ two-yard-line, the second-year quarterback found all of his targets covered and tucked the ball to run. As he scrambled across the line of scrimmage, Panthers safety Mike Adams floated into his field of vision, squaring up one yard in front of the goal line.
One way to look at the choice the Sixers made in signing Joel Embiid to a five-year, $148 million contract extension is to look at what they might’ve done with the money if they’d ended up letting him walk. Granted, that wasn’t a guaranteed consequence if they’d forced him to play out this season before agreeing to a new deal. If Embiid ended up playing 70 games and winning MVP, they still would have been able to match any offer he received in restricted free agency next summer.
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".
