Sports has a new power couple. It’s Sue Bird and Megan Rapinoe. In an interview with ESPNW, Bird said she and Rapinoe have been dating since last fall. “I’m gay. Megan’s my girlfriend,” said Bird, a four-time Olympic gold medalist and a 10-time WNBA All-Star with the Seattle Storm. “These aren’t secrets to people who know me.”Rapinoe, 31, a midfielder on the U.S. National Team, also plays for the Seattle Reign of the National Women’s Soccer League.
Starting pitchers really must be an endangered species. How else can we explain the fact that Edwin Jackson keeps resurfacing in the big leagues? The most regrettable acquisition of the Theo Epstein Cubs era starts Tuesday night for the Nationals — that's right, the pitching-rich Nationals — against the Angels. Jackson is filling in for the injured Joe Ross and slotting into the fifth spot in the Nats' rotation.
Imagine if the Bears and Packers were picking 1-2 in the NFL draft. It would be bad enough to whiff on the first overall pick, but even worse if your rival wound up getting the superstar you failed to choose. That's the kind of pressure the New Jersey Devils are feeling heading into Friday's NHL draft. The Devils lucked out in the lottery and won the top slot, but picking right behind them are the Philadelphia Flyers, their Metropolitan Division rivals.
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".
