On a Sunday evening in early November, my friends and I sat in my family room sprawled on the couch. A largely ignored NFL game lit up the television screen as we joked and laughed. At one point, I opened my mouth to begin to tell a story and one of my friends interrupted me, “Josh, I just have t...
When the Philadelphia Eagles clinched a dramatic 15-10 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday night, it ensured one final game would be played in South Philly. The Eagles will host the Minnesota Vikings (who won in even more dramatic fashion) in the NFC Championship Game at Lincoln Financial Field, a privilege earned after garnering the conference’s top seed as the best regular-season team. The game is slated to start at 6:40 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 21.
Before he was a five-time NBA Champion, before a professional career that spanned 19 seasons and a personal life marked with a sexual assault charge, and before the Los Angeles Lakers retire both his No. 24 and No. 8 jerseys, Kobe Bryant was a Philadelphia-area high school star. Bryant is a noted Eagles fan and had soft pretzels and mustard waiting for him in the visiting locker room when he came back to his hometown to play (and quite often beat) the 76ers.
I wasn’t a very good runner this summer (in part because I was on a 13,000-mile road trip), but plan to buckle down on my training next week, and one way I’ll do that is to run with a group. According to Running USA’s 2017 National Runner Survey, this is a popular thing. They found that six in 10 runners are part of a group, one in three are involved in a local running club or social group and one in 10 are part of a virtual running club or challenge group.
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".
