King Solomon's Mind: Calling Colin Kaepernick would be a smart move for TexansIt is beyond time for the Texans to make a smart football move. The smartest move they can make right now would be to give Colin Kaepernick a call. The season is falling apart. Kaepernick might not be able to rescue it, but as my daddy used to say, “He won’t hurt none.”Signing Kaepernick would have been smart the minute the Texans drafted Deshaun Watson.
The sports gods giveth an Astros World Series championship one day, and taketh away all of the Texans' hope the next? Come on, man. What did Houston do to y'all? So much for the Texans being the most entertaining team in the NFL. After having one of the worst scoring seasons of any playoff team in history a year ago, the Texans have the highest-scoring offense in the league this season at 30.7 points per game. That is in large part due to the brilliance of rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson.
Alex Rodriguez has heard the comparisons before. Too often. For the better part of 25 years, every shortstop with major league potential who stood 6-2 or better has been measured against him. These premature evaluations were unrealistic, almost unfair. Predictably, none who stood eye-to-eye with the 6-3 Rodriguez has come close to matching one of the most productive players in MLB history.
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".
