So here we go once again. An active shooter at an American school , only difference was this was in our backyard of South Florida so it raised an eyebrow. As time went on the horrific details began to emerge. This latest shooting carnage claimed the lives of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. I watched along with my kids who had came home from school already, they had the look of relief “Glad that was not us” on their faces.
I know of many in the media that have grown quite weary of the daily riot acts of Lavar Ball. I was not one of them. I supported Lavar Ball. Loud. Brash. Determined. Ready to battle the system at every given opportunity. I looked at Lavar like a marketing genius but at some point he needs to shut the hell up. I think we may have reached that point.
There was just something different about this night at AmericanAirlines Arena. An electric buzz in the atmosphere as Miami Heat fans eagerly awaited the return of their favorite son. They did not have to wait too long as with five minutes remaining in the first quarter of the home clash with the visiting Milwaukee Bucks, Wade came off the bench to loud cheers. A short time later, he nailed a three-pointer, it was to be his only field goal of the night. Truth is it really did not matter.
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".
