Sue Bird yesterday told everyone that she's dating Megan Rapinoe, and I cried at my desk. I shouldn't be surprised by my tears (I cry at everything), but I am. I didn't expect to cry when Bird told the public something that was never really a secret. And I certainly didn't expect to choke up in the middle of a meeting right before being told that I should write about why I was crying in the first place. But Bird's decision to let fans see this side of her stripped me bare.
Should have gone for the dismount. Meagan Martin realized her mistake as her fingers slipped off The Rail Runner. The bar was crooked, with one end wedged on the rail. She could have ascended one foot to the next platform and swung off, or just gone for it at that moment. She chose the former, and her body hit the water. Martin finished the city qualifying course in each of her previous three seasons. No other woman has finished two qualifying courses. Martin has been steady and consistent.
Listen. If "Watch Me Work" doesn't get you pumped up, then I don't know what to tell you. These women go hard, and the new WNBA spot "Your Move - Part II" showcases their athleticism. Elena Delle Donne's crossover would actually break my ankles. And I'm not sure what kind of crunches Skylar Diggins-Smith was doing, but she was hanging upside down, and that's enough to show that she means business.
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".
