It might not be quite so traumatic as having to learn how drive on the other side of the road after years driving on the right, or injuring your arm and then trying to do everything with the opposite hand. But for players who’ve come over the from the American League to the National — and the Phillies have a bunch of them — there’s a lot more to it than the fact the AL has the designated hitter and the NL doesn’t. There’s having to familiarize yourself with the hitters — or pitchers.
At this time of the year, if you write about the NFL for a living, you’re probably begging for training camp to start. With the exception of Colin Kaepernick still not being signed, there really isn’t a juicy subject to help pass the time. With OTA’s going on and the minor stimulus that comes with that, it’s a little easier if you write about a specific team like the Eagles. Nationally, you are doing QB’s lists and grading every team’s offseason. Which brings me to Chris Burke of SI.com.
After being dormant for so long, the parking lot at Jack’s Delicatessen on Bustleton Avenue and Tustin Street in the Northeast is jammed again. The usual sparse weekday lunch crowd is bustling. Old faces who haven’t come around for ages are showing up. So what’s going on? “I’ll give you the word,” said the man who opened the place along with his father in 1966. “It’s a feeling that came from my father, hamishshticka. It’s a Jewish word that means home-like.
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".
