The University of Houston is dancing into the second round for the first time in decades. The Cougars made good on their promise to play "for the city" on Thursday night and made sure that the rest of the basketball world has its eyes on UH as it moves forward in the NCAA Tournament. Rob Gray made sure that no one will think about the end of the American Athletic Conference Championship game anymore.
Laurel D'Antoni unloaded the boxes of toiletries and cleaning supplies out of her car while people from the neighborhood stopped to pick up what they could carry home to use for cleanup. Like so many areas around town, Greenriver Estates suffered devastating damage during Hurricane Harvey. And Laurel, who has been a Houston resident for almost two years since her husband Mike was hired to coach the Rockets, wanted to help.
As a teenager in France with a looming NBA career, Clint Capela was far more into watching professional games than college ones. But like a lot of basketball fans, his interest in the college level peaked during March, when the madness of the NCAA tournament took over the hoops world. Capela didn't really know much about the difference between No. 2 seed Kansas or No. 9 seed Oklahoma State, but he did know exactly who Andrew Wiggins, Joel Embiid and Marcus Smart were.
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".
