- Imagine facing an 80 mph fastball -- and trying to hit it. Now, imagine hitting that same pitch coming towards you as you're standing practically on top of the pitching machine. "I move up anywhere from 22 feet to 17 feet from the maching, which increases the speed," says Stanley Anderson. "Physics dictates that being that close - 17 feet - the miles per hour, from regulation, would be 266 mph." Stanley is the head of security at C.J. Barrymores.
“Once you are real, you can never be ugly except to those who don’t understand.” B. L. Sherrington reviews the Unicorn Theatre’s staging of The Velveteen Rabbit. The Velveteen Rabbit is a highly adored 1922 children’s book by Margery Williams. Part of its charm is the warm manner in which the shy stuffed toy is made real by the love of a little boy who receives him as a Christmas present.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are one win away from the Super Bowl for the second time in 19 years. They won just 3 games a year ago. During that time the Lions have not won a single playoff game. The Jaguars. An expansion team. Let that sink in.
This afternoon I watched two Black Mirror episodes that were so unnerving. Was this how people reacted to The Twilight Zone when it first aired 50+ years ago? For those in the know, the episodes were "White Bear" and "15 Million Merits" 👀 #nospoilers
So now I'm thinking the existential gloom that hangs over #BlackMirror might be something better processed when you can go outside in the sun and wash it off. Maybe not the show to binge-watch in January. In Michigan. 👀 Still good, though.
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".
