Remember the Telephone Game, where the first person in line whispers a word or a phrase into the ear of the person next to them? And the word or phrase is whispered to the next person until it reaches the last player in line, with that person says the word or phrase out loud so everyone can hear how much it has changed from the first whisper? Mixing Italian with English proved to be quite amusing at the Blizzard home Sunday afternoon.
Blake Reese has embraced his utility role for the Florida Gators. The former Lincoln High player knows he can be inserted into a game at a moment’s notice. Saturday night’s College World Series game against TCU was a perfect example. Reese was warming up right fielder Nelson Maldonado in the bottom of the third inning when he noticed teammates in the Florida dugout yelling and trying to get his attention.
Retired Florida A&M professor Barbara Oguntade is moving at Bob Hayes speed. Oguntade believes Ken Riley – one of the Rattlers’ most cherished athletes - unequivocally and unambiguously belongs in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Hayes, once considered the World's Fastest Human, is the only FAMU player enshrined in its hallowed halls.
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".
