As the high school football season approaches, teams around the country are beginning preparations with offseason workouts, but some of those workouts take tragic turns. The latest of these tragedies came in Grand Ledge, Mich., where an incoming high school freshman, Everson Guild, died after losing consciousness during a training session in the Grand Ledge High School weight room.
David Beckham's plans to build a Major League Soccer stadium in Miami hit a new legal snag this week as a wealthy landowner filed suit over the sale of land the would-be stadium would rest on. The Miami Herald reports that Bruce Matheson, whose family is famous in the area for previously blocking the expansion of sports facilities, filed suit to block the sale of county land to a Beckham-led group.
U.S. Bank Stadium has earned plenty of headlines in its first year of operation for both its architectural accomplishments and oddities. The same stadium that incorporated the world’s largest ETFE roof also posed a unique threat to birds. Now, the home of the Minnesota Vikings is set to undergo a series of repairs in order to shore up leaky walls. As AB reported in May, after being buffeted by heavy storms and wind, some of the stadium’s exterior paneling came loose, leading to leaky walls.
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".
