"At the moment, I feel the same way I've felt about the Cubs since I was six years old," Bob Newhart said. "They make me nervous." "And they make me very nervous for an 87-year-old man who doesn't like to be nervous."
What in the name of Mike Ditka is wrong with you people? Why aren't you watching enough football? I keep seeing these shocking reports that NFL television ratings have slipped for the 2016 season-about 10 percent down for the league's first month, according to a story last week from the Journal's Joe Flint.
She's gone from Hollywood unknown to Oscar nominee-but can Emma Stone sing and dance her way through an old-fashioned movie musical? Get ready for La La Land, the biggest leap of Stone's high-flying career.
News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services. The late comedian was a fanatical cyclist and his expansive and eccentric collection of bicycles is now up for sale San Francisco -- It's possible Robin Williams loved bicycles as much as anyone has ever loved bicycles.
Look: You know I am not in the habit of discouraging the responsible consumption of alcohol. Especially during this presidential election cycle. But baseball's champagne celebrations have gotten absurd-and need to be chilled. It's not the idea of a champagne celebration, which I happily endorse, though I suggest taking it easy, because champagne hangovers are the pits.
I believe many reasonable people wouldn't mind two things happening right now: 1. They wouldn't mind if this Presidential race ended tomorrow - or was shot into outer space with a giant space cannon. 2. They wouldn't mind if the Chicago Cubs finally won the World Series.
This is our second Journal installment of Rules for Conquering the Gym, because let's be honest: You probably have yet to conquer the gym. It's OK. Gyms are tricky relationships. You fall in and out of love. Commitment fades. Maybe you have a torrid affair with ice cream sandwiches.
Ever since I went public in the Journal about my dislike of the University of Michigan, concerned people around the planet have asked me: what would I do if my Wisconsin Badgers lost on Saturday Oct. 1 in Ann Arbor? After all, the Journal's newsroom is criminally rife with Wolverines-they're everywhere-so a Badger loss was going to be miserable...
There are a lot of reasons I want-no, I need-my Wisconsin Badgers to defeat the No. 4 Michigan Wolverines in football Saturday. The most obvious reason is that I graduated from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, unequivocally regarded as the planet's finest institution of higher learning and bratwurst (sorry, you Harvard/Stanford losers).
A predictable side effect of the NFL becoming America's Most Vitally Important Human Activity (Outside of Screaming at Each Other Over the Election) is that every aspect of it becomes unhinged and amplified. For example: early season panic. We freak out earlier than ever.
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
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".
