It's a name that pays homage to Birmingham's proud sports history for a team with big plans for the future of a reenergized city. Birmingham Legion FC is the new name of Birmingham's expansion USL soccer team, which begins play in 2019. With a nod to Legion Field, Birmingham's industrial past and the Birmingham Hammers, the team's brand and logo is something the ownership group hopes will capture the passion of Birmingham's young people for their city on the rise. That shouldn't be too hard.
Off the bench in the national championship game. Sent to Alabama from Hawaii to save the Crimson Tide. And the kid did it on the last play with a 41-yard spinning, spiralling miracle. It was theater. It was magic. It was Disney. It was all the energy in a stadium built for just this moment sucked into one single subatomic particle and then released with the gravity of a thousand exploding stars.
Until Nick Saban leaves Alabama or retires, the Crimson Tide is going to be in the hunt for the College Football Playoff every season. He might want to figure out how to retain some coordinators, however, if he wants to make winning these national championship games a little easier again. Another season is over for Alabama, and another coordinator is off to a different job.
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".
