ASU football fans should be ripped for their apparent disinterest? Here we go again, huh? Well, three things about that:1. The criticism is short-sighted, tired and often comes from media members who rarely spend their own money to attend games in person. 2. It's not really accurate, statistics show. 3. "Bandwagon" is more of a compliment, I believe. Sports fans don't want - or need - advice on how to spend their money. As for our humble sports town, often described as bandwagon in nature? Good for us.
The time had come, and it looks like Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough finally made the Eric Bledsoe deal, and now the much-discussed "Timeline" under which the Suns are operating has been extended again. By gaining more assets and peddling the team's starting point guard, the Suns now turn toward additional trade options and an even longer-term view of their competitive future.
The list of coaching candidates to fill the Suns’ vacancy should include some prominent names. Today’s NBA certainly allows for a variety of coaching candidates. Nothing should be off the table when trying to identify the coach to move this franchise forward. It’s worth talking about Steve Nash and Dan Majerle, for marketing purposes. It’s worth trying to nail a basketball-smart choice, too. Assistant coaches Adrian Griffin (Thunder) and Ime Udoka (Spurs) are worthy targets.
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".
