On Episode 18 of Burn It All Down, Julie DiCaro, Lindsay Gibbs, Brenda Elsey and Jessica Luther talk Art Briles and second chances, and Maria Sharapova’s return to the grand slam stage. Then Jessica interviews Jemele Hill, co-host of ESPN’s SportsCenter at 6pm, aka The Six. They talk about being political in public these days, the role of sports in moments like this, and Hill’s Michigan State fandom in the wake of multiple sexual abuse/violence scandals in the athletic department.
A glowing press release from the Canadian Football League’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced this morning that they have hired former Baylor head football coach Art Briles to be the Assistant Head Coach Offence. I know people wonder what I’m thinking in moments like this so here are my thoughts. I have always assumed Briles would coach again.
Harvey the Hurricane is barreling down on the Texas/Louisiana Gulf Coast. It will bring with it high winds, a possible significant storm surge, and heavy rains. This all suggests that some areas will face damaging floods. There’s plenty to say about this topic but I want to draw attention to one small but not insignificant impact if there is flooding in Louisiana. Whenever I hear about flooding in Louisiana now, I think of a Reveal (from CIR) podcast episode about public defenders in the state.
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".
