Miami basketball coach Jim Larrañaga spoke Monday for the first time about the FBI’s probe into pay-to-play college basketball schemes and his alleged connection to one of them. Larrañaga said he appears to be “Coach-3,” the Miami basketball coach in the FBI documents who is mentioned as requesting $150,000 from adidas executives for a recruit, who appears to be UNC commit Nassir Little, as a way to secure Little’s commitment to Miami and eventually to adidas.
Jemele Hill, the ESPN SportsCenter host who earlier this week called Donald Trump a “white supremacist” on Twitter, says her comment about the president “expressed my personal beliefs.” Hill, in the statement she posted on Twitter late Wednesday, then went on to say, “My regret is that my comments and the public way I made them painted ESPN in an unfair light.
Mother’s Day is a couple of weeks away and if you’re like me, you’re trying to decide what you want to do that day. But if you’re also like me, the last thing you want on the day meant to celebrate you is to have to be somewhere. I don’t want to have to get out of bed early, make myself presentable, make my boys, who are 12 and 9, look presentable and go to brunch. My husband and I get to get the little people out the door five days a week as it is. A sixth day is punishment, not a celebration.
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".
