Just a few short weeks ago, it was fair to wonder if Oklahoma dynamo Trae Young should be the No. 1 pick in the upcoming 2018 NBA draft. He was blitzing opposing defenses across the country, marching into arena after arena and pouring in 30.2 points and 9.5 assists per game while shooting 40.9% from three-point land. But that conversation came to a halt once the calendar flipped to February, as the Sooners would suffer a six-game losing streak and watch their freshman phenom sputter.
After every tragedy, politi- cal reformers seek to har- ness the emotional energy of the moment to push their legis- lative agenda. Typically, this con- sists of accusing those opposed to their reforms of being responsible for the tragedy in order to sway the undecideds. This grandstanding technique allows them to de ect any attempts at reason with emo- tional denunciations. Unfortu- nately, it de ects from actual sub- stantive discussion that could result in positive reform.
Valerie Guiliani began on the street where she and T.J. McConnell grew up together. Tasked with a scavenger hunt around Pittsburgh, Guiliani followed a laundry list that ultimately spilled into Chartiers Valley High School’s main gym. Dozens of flowers blanketed the court and surrounded McConnell, who kneeled alongside the couple’s new dog. There, McConnell asked his kindergarten classmate and longtime girlfriend to be his wife on the very hardwood that launched the journey of a lifetime.
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".
