If planking seemed too intelligent a pursuit for you, the latest trend for knuckleheads might be your next new thing: running people over with golf carts. The Instagram TotalFratMove is all over it. Naturally, the trend began with an Internet meme. A Vine video posed the question: Would you run over your best friend for $2 million? The answer, it would seem, is a resounding “yes.” In fact, people will do it for free. Is it funny to watch?
Gambling lingo for a lucky streak, a “heater” is a run of unbridled fortune. From February until June 2016, the 36-year-old poker professional couldn’t lose. “I hit the zone and just felt it,” he says. “I ran two grand up to $97,000 at blackjack. I put up big numbers at poker.”He accrued a six-figure windfall and the ride seemed endless — until it wasn’t. “I got overwhelmed and began playing over my head,” Fisher says.
In the macho Chechen Republic, mixed martial arts (MMA) ranks as a de facto national sport. The nation’s 40-year-old dictator, Ramzan Kadyrov, is wild about in-ring combat. A number of Chechen fighters have stepped up to the big time and signed with America’s premier MMA fighting league, the Ultimate Fighting Championship. After signing up with the league, Chechen flyweight Magomed Bibulatov was sent off with a lavish meal hosted by strongman Kadyrov.
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".
