After further review…There seems to be more after-the-whistle illegal pushing, shoving, and fisticuffs in the National Football League this season than in years past. Seems to be? Ya gotta be kiddin’ me. The past couple of weeks, we’ve seen two players suspended for a game and several others ejected and fined for fighting after the whistle. Does fining players twenty or thirty thousand dollars matter when their salaries are several million per game?
After further review… since the 2017 Major League Baseball World Series is, as they say, in the books. The Houston Astros can rejoice with their Commissioner’s Trophy until the 2018 season, which begins when pitchers and catchers report to spring training in less than 120 days — hardly enough time to spend relaxing in the islands. In Game 1 of the World Series, the two “Ks” were on the mound — Los Angeles’ Clayton Kershaw and Houston’s Dallas Keuchel.
After further review… A recent pile-up of NFL players resulted in one player kicking an opponent after the play was over. There was nothing apparent that provoked the player who delivered the kick. A teammate of the player who was kicked responded by saying, “That’s not what football is all about.” That same perpetrator was disciplined last year with a five-game suspension for a late hit on a defenseless player. Some players just don’t get it.
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".
