It seems there’s a scandal brewing in baseball as the Red Sox may have already confessed to stealing the play-calling signs of the New York Yankees by using an Apple Watch. The act of spying on other teams has always been a part of baseball, though there are rules on the books to prevent that type of behavior. Still, teams have become more sophisticated in their techniques over the years, and now it seems the Red Sox have taken spying to an entirely new level.
In a hard-fought battle that pushed American tennis star Venus Williams, the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open came to an exciting conclusion as she battled her way to success over Czech Republic player Petra Kvitova. Venus Williams entered the night riding a wave of success she and her fellow Americans enjoyed, as four U.S. players entered the quarterfinals for the first time since 2002.
In what can be considered a sign of the times, The New York Daily News, which has been published since 1919, was sold on Monday to the publishing company, Tronc. Publisher of both The Los Angeles Times and The Chicago Tribune, Tronc reportedly purchased the Daily for only $1. While the price tag might be surprising for many, the true cost of the purchase lies in the debt that Tronc will be assuming by making the purchase.
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".
