The American team of Nicholas Lucena and Philip Dalhausser have won the men’s World Series of Beach Volleyball President’s Cup. They made it past the Candian team of Sam Pedlow and Sam Schachter in the finals after a bracket pit the best teams from the USA against one another, with the ultimate winner taking on the winner from the international bracket. That means the losers of the semifinals played one another in the bronze medal match.
The 2017 X Games in Minneapolis wrapped up on Sunday, with several more gold medals given out to some of the best action sports stars in the world. Sunday brought out the big guns, with the BMX Dirt and Skateboard Park Finals as well as the Moto X Quarterpipe High Air Final. The latter was one of the most exciting to watch, and Colby Raha ran away with it. Raha took home the gold medal with a height of 355.00 inches, and you can see the run that gave him the win right over here, via ESPN.
Competitive gaming isn’t going anywhere, and the yearly Evo fighting game tournament is a sure sign of that. The best players in the world compete for trophies and cash prizes in the biggest games, including the latest entries in the Street Fighter, Tekken, Killer Instinct, Guilty Gear, and Super Smash Bros. series. Mainstream sporting press has been slow to adopt competitive gaming, or esports, but ESPN has occasionally dipped its toes in the water.
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".
