Enlarge this image Election year or not, nothing says fall like football and basketball - and while politics may dominate the public consciousness, there are a lot of people flipping the channel to sports for a respite from that kind of action.
Recently my Nuzzel feed was full of stories about Facebook's latest announcement: Facebook is changing their newsfeed algorithm (again!) to focus on posts from friends and family rather than content from publishers and pages. You can read more about this news in The New York Times, TechCrunch, Recode, WSJ, The Verge, Nieman Lab, Digiday, Huffington Post, or Mashable.
Stephanie Danler, whose foodie novel, "Sweetbitter," is No. 14 on the hardcover fiction list, prefers restaurants "where I can feel the staff a little bit, they have a little bit of a personality."
The following piece is a guest post from Jonathan Abrams, founder and CEO of Nuzzel. Guest posts do not necessarily reflect the opinions of this publication.

Bernard James refused to bend to his mother's plea. "I'm not going," he said. "It's not going to happen." He told her that he wouldn't be attending his commencement at Florida State University in April. He'd walked enough stages during his six-year stint in the Air Force.
Before Monta there was Antwain. And any opponent brave enough to slash into the lane of Lanier High's defense had to contend with Antwain Ellis. With his long reach and feline instincts, the 6-foot-8 power forward made a habit of spiking basketballs out of the paint.
The best-selling sports books in March 2016, according to the New York Times best-seller list. 1. THE BOYS IN THE BOAT by Daniel James Brown (Penguin). A group of American rowers pursues gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games. 3. UNBROKEN by Laura Hillenbrand (Random House).
Jonathan Abrams's new book, Boys Among Men, look at an era when high schoolers were able to make the jump straight to the NBA. Some-like Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, Tracy McGrady, and LeBron James-made it, and were able to carve out successful Hall of Fame-caliber careers.
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
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".
