While the skiers, snowboarders, skaters and bobsledders are getting attention now, the 2020 Summer Games in Japan will feature surfing for the first time, and Huntington Beach's Kanoa Igarashi made a decision this week that likely will put him in the water in Chiba, Japan, with a chance to win Olympic hardware.
For some, the Super Bowl commercials are as entertaining and interesting as the game itself. For 11-time surfing world champion Kelly Slater, it’s fair to say he’ll be one who will focus on the commercials as much as the game. Well, at least one commercial. “I can sing … I’m not tone deaf,” Slater said during a phone call last week. “I’ve actually been singing most of my life. I was never schooled in music theory or anything like that, but for 25, 27 years now I’ve been singing, writing songs.
You could see the disappointment on Tyler Gunter’s face, all the way on the other side of the world. Gunter, from Newport Beach, has been in Australia for the Jeep World Junior Championship, which is the world championship for 18-and-under surfers. Only 36 surfers qualify for the contest after a year’s worth of contests all over the world.
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".
