The Chargers made some history Sunday, and they did it, in all places, San Diego. The Nielsen TV rating for the Chargers-Dolphins game on KFMB Channel 8 was measured at 12.3. That’s the lowest rating for a Chargers game in this market since at least 1998, according to Union-Tribune records, which date back to the start of the 1999 season. The previous low in that time came on Dec. 10, 2000, when a Chargers-Ravens game in Baltimore earned a 13.9 rating.
It’s right there in the picture:OK, we’re still on daylight saving time, not standard time. But that’s not the big error. Looks like someone missed a memo. Not to mention a city getting its collective heart ripped out some eight months ago. The New York Times on Tuesday night included on its website a story headlined “Explore 7 N.F.L. Cities Beyond Football” that offers fans helpful hints if they plan to attend a National Football League game this weekend in seven different cities.
For the second time this year, CoCo Vandeweghe has reached the semifinals of a Grand Slam tennis tournament. Vandeweghe, from Rancho Santa Fe, upset the world's No. 1-ranked player, Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic, 7-6 (5), 6-3, in a quarterfinal match Wednesday in New York. In January, Vandeweghe advanced to a Grand Slam semifinal for the first time at the Australian Open. She won the first set against Venus Williams but lost the match in three sets.
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".
