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.
The other night, without asking permission, Twitter delivered a Jets-Bills NFL game to my phone. My reaction was not unlike those times when our family cat would drag an already-chewed-upon, halfway-to-heaven critter from the rooftop down into the living room, proudly depositing it on the rug.
"To tell you the truth, I don't know if I'll hold it in, or lose it completely," Edie Brannigan said. This was last week, while Brannigan was still at her family's home in East Northport, N.Y., a couple days from getting on a plane to Rio de Janeiro to watch her son, Mikey, compete for Team USA in the 2016 Paralympic Games.
At 73, master municipal-bond seller Jim Lebenthal was close to giving it all up, reports jason gay, to make little videos promoting the city he loved. But when the towers on which he'd sold thousands of investors went down, how could he go on?Jim Lebenthal didn't have to be in the office anymore.
News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services. When the San Francisco 49ers' quarterback held a protest in the NFL preseason, America immediately started yelling-when it should have been listening 1.
Bud Collins has departed us for the great round-robin in the sky, which means two things for this year's U.S. Open: The great American tennis tournament is no longer graced by the sport's most beloved journalist and enthusiast, and there's been a severe downturn in men's style.
This is the Journal's second annual Super Bowl Party Rules column, which I guess makes it Super Bowl Party Rules 2, which sounds like a terrible movie starring Ryan Reynolds. You can see why the NFL loves to spiff up its Super Bowl with fancy-pants Roman numerals.
I guess it's impossible to write a column about practice in this day and age without somebody making the Allen Iverson joke, "We're talking about practice?" So let's just get that tired gag out of the way, right here, up top. Done! Now let's talk about tennis practice at the U.S.
Wesley Chapel, Fla. He is the unfrozen phenom. Brian Baker was going to be a tennis star. That's where this was headed. A decade ago, Baker was one of the best junior tennis players in the world, the wiry kid from Nashville, Tenn., with the punishing game, so good he would later reach the boys' final of the French Open in 2003.
As a group, they resembled the Tennis Super Friends, gathered at the Baseline Hall of Justice-a comic book-like tableau of legends, a little too surreal to absorb all at once. They assembled on the 20th floor of New York's St. Regis Hotel on Wednesday morning, dressed not in shorts and headbands, but in immaculate shirts and jackets.
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".
