Families across America will gather around the Thanksgiving table Thursday, and eventually you just know someone is going to ruin an enjoyable holiday meal by talking politics. You could just fill your mouth with stuffing and nod your head in a subtle, non-committal way. Or you could be everyone’s hero by changing the subject to football, which is as much of a Thanksgiving tradition as that canned cranberry stuff no one would ever eat at any other time of year.
A rattlesnake found out what many NHL players already knew: Don't mess around with Jeremy Roenick. Roenick used a pair of golf irons to subdue a rattlesnake that found its way onto his property in Arizona. He posted a video of the encounter on Twitter. After pinning the snake with the club heads, Roenick grabbed the intruder by the neck, carried it to the edge of the backyard and then flung it high over the wall. The former Blackhawk and current NBC Sports analyst has a home in the Scottsdale area.
Theo Epstein can do the impossible. He built a Red Sox team that ended an 86-year championship drought by winning the World Series in 2004. Then, to prove it was no fluke, his Red Sox won another title in 2007. He moved on to Chicago and slayed another dragon, breathing new life into a moribund Cubs organization and winning the 2016 World Series, the franchise’s first championship in 108 years. When they say it can’t be done, Epstein does 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".
