This past spring I attended an advance screening of excerpts of Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s documentary about the US War against Vietnam at Harvard, with these two in attendance, along with some Kennedy School “national security” types, who had evidently been recruited as “consultants.” (I was happy to see Peter Davis, the director of the truly commendable “Hearts and Minds” in the audience, and had a chance to say “hello.” Peter is himself a Harvard grad, is now writing novels and, happily,...
When you trade up back into the second round of the NFL draft to take a kicker, you sure as hell better know what you’re doing. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers did not. One year after taking Roberto Aguayo with the 28th pick of the second round, the Bucs decided it was time to part ways with their young kicker.
With the Tennessee Titans preparing to make their preseason debut this Saturday, the team released their unofficial depth chart at the start of the week. This is officially the first unofficial depth chart the team has released this season and gives us a glimpse into who has the edge in certain positional battles. For the most part, there are very few shockers on the depth chart. For the most part, everything is what you’d expect.
@BMcDevs That's the thing, "legit" is something I don't throw around lightly. Idk if the Vikings are even legit and i'm talking them up. They're easily a top 3 team in the NFC, but their win today shows how good they are while showing that they're beatable
@BMcDevs Saints lost Lattimore early and gave up their most points in 5 weeks. This is a defense that had broken its own record for yards allowed in consecutive seasons. Brees is great, but they weren't suppose to be this good going into the year
@BMcDevs Vikings have won 7 of last 8. Saints look good, but I question the legitimacy of any team who leans on rookies as much as they have. I think they're gonna come back down to earth w/o Lattimore
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".
