Mauricio Pochettino branded the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system a "nightmare" after Tottenham Hotspur cruised into the FA Cup semifinals with a 3-0 win at Swansea City. Two goals from Christian Eriksen and one from Erik Lamela secured a spot in the last four for Tottenham, but the victory was not without controversy as Son Heung-Min's 23rd-minute goal was ruled out for offside.
Tottenham cruised into the semi-finals of the FA Cup with a comfortable 3-0 win away to Swansea. Christian Eriksen opened the scoring in the 11th minute with a beautifully struck shot from the edge of the box and Erik Lamela doubled the lead on the stroke of half-time. The home side started the second half with more urgency and briefly threatened to make a contest of it, but when Eriksen added a third shortly after the hour mark it was game over.
MondayOne of the more bizarre Westminster set-pieces took place today when the Speaker, John Bercow, granted an urgent question into claims of bullying of parliamentary staff by MPs. As Bercow was one of those MPs against whom these allegations had been made, you might have expected him to excuse himself from the Speaker’s chair and allow his deputy to oversee the session. Not a bit of 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".
