The heart of Angela Ramirez Holmes was already full. She and her husband, Garrett, had seen the eyes of their 10-year-old son, Andrew, beam upon meeting a professional football player who had successfully beaten the same, rare blood vessel affliction he was now battling himself. But as Neiron Ball, the Raiders’ rookie linebacker, walked toward an awaiting car in the aftermath of that preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals in August, something made him turn back around.
Rodger Carr will never forget the sight of his oldest son being greeted by Commissioner Paul Tagliabue at Madison Square Garden on NFL Draft day. Or the follow-up sight, that of his precocious youngest son, Derek, then 11, making his own Tagliabue moment. It was April 20, 2002, when the Houston Texans made David Carr the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft.
San Jose>> Derek Carr became the richest Raider on Thursday — the richest player in the NFL, in fact — and the team had little choice. The exact terms will trickle out in time, but as of now, Carr’s deal is reportedly for five years and $125 million — making him the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL on a per-year basis.
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".
