Indianapolis will host the NBA All-Star Game in 2021. And with it comes many other festivities, including the NBA Slam Dunk Contest. The last time Indianapolis hosted the All-Star game was 1985. And the Slam Dunk Contest that year was loaded with a ridiculous amount of notable NBA players. It was the beginning of a golden era of dunk contests that lasted four years. Sports Illustrated ranks the 1985 contest as the fifth-greatest of all time. Every contest between 1985 and 1988 appears on the list.
One Indianapolis-based company and two companies with large Indianapolis offices made Glassdoor's new "2018 Best Places to Work" list. Indianapolis-based Eli Lilly and Company is ranked as the 52nd best place to work on the list. The company previously appeared on the 2012 list at No. 46. "A company that truly care about their workers and about their employees. Great benefits and great atmosphere all around," a top comment on Glassdoor for Eli Lilly reads.
A widely shared Facebook post showing an impending 12-inch snowfall caused a minor panic on Facebook and Twitter yesterday. That is, until the professionals stepped in and called it #FakeNews. A WISH-TV (Channel 8) forecast posted to Facebook showed major snowfall headed Indiana's way. It was shared more than 600 times. Turns out, it's a forecast map from 2014, according to WISH Meteorologist and Weather Executive Producer Ken Brewer. Brewer's 2014 forecast was correct, by the way.
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".
