Back in the day, every PPR episode started with a short skit. Think Saturday Night Live but not nearly as funny. Over the first 14 years of the show we must have produced close to 150 of these so-called “opens.” Former KUSI meteorologist John Coleman starred in at least 14 of them. Be it sitting in a hot tub with Stephanie Kelly (spoofing the TV show Elimidate), or impersonating weapons specialist “M” in James Bond, John Coleman proved that his talent did not stop at the weather map.
The Air Force Academy has responded to the federal government shutdown by canceling all of their scheduled sporting events "until further notice." This includes the men's and women's basketball teams matches against Fresno State today, men's gymnastics, men's ice hockey, rifle, and men's and women's swimming meets. "Due to the government shutdown, all Air Force Academy home and away intercollegiate athletic events have been cancelled until further notice," the academy said in a statement via ESPN.
During Terrell Owens' final season with the Dallas Cowboys in 2008, ESPN published a story claiming that Owens grew jealous of Tony Romo's relationship with tight end Jason Witten. ESPN reports that T.O. aired out these grievances during a meeting with fellow wide receivers Roy Williams and Patrick Crayton, wide receiver coach Ray Sherman, and then-offensive coordinator Jason Garrett.
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".
