I’ve never seen anything quite like the Gold Cup game Tuesday between French Guiana and Honduras. French Guiana is part of France, despite being on the Caribbean coast of South America. Because of this, it is not a FIFA member and is ineligible for the World Cup. But it is part of CONCACAF and sends a team to CONCACAF events like the Gold Cup. After losing its opening game of the Gold Cup, French Guiana decided to throw out the rulebook.
Summer in the soccer world means that it’s the season for transfer rumors as clubs across the world cut deals for new players. The names change every summer, but every year transfer stories seem to follow one of three patterns. One features an established star who is “reportedly unhappy” with his current situation. This summer, that player is Real Madrid attacker Cristiano Ronaldo.
Watching the U.S. men’s national team’s World Cup qualifying matches last week offered a reminder that, apart from the World Cup itself, the qualifiers are just about the biggest games that the United States plays. Teen sensation Christian Pulisic scored both goals in a much-needed home victory against Trinidad and Tobago, and Michael Bradley scored one of the best goals in American history to earn a 1-1 draw away against Mexico.
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".
