Even if some are trying to take us back in time, the world, thank goodness, is a different place. Hard-nosed, intelligent and an old-school gentleman, Baylor, a true Texas legend, died Monday after more than a decade-long battle with multiple myeloma. He was 68. Baylor - the 1979 American League MVP, 1985 Roberto Clemente Award winner and 1995 National League Manager of the Year - isn't a Hall of Famer, but when the story of baseball is told, it will be difficult not to mention his name.
LaDainian Tomlinson delivered a moving speech when he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, closing it with what he said was a message. He began that section of his speech with "If this was my last day on Earth, and this my final speech," then shared the story of his great great great grandfather George, and the Tomlinson family.
King Solomon's Mind: Only a matter of time for Texas' Deshaun WatsonThis is going to be a painful process for Tom Savage. His dream of being an NFL starter, one he probably has had since he started playing pee wee football, is about to become true. Sadly for him, though, he can't get anywhere near REM sleep without people nudging him awake to remind him that Deshaun Watson has a dream, too. And Savage shouldn't have slept too comfortably after Wednesday night's preseason game at Carolina.
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".
