Marshawn Lynch may be facing a one-game suspension this week, but that doesn’t mean he’s taking any days off. While the Raiders prepare for their Week 8 matchup against the Bills, Lynch went to practice at Oakland Technical High School on Wednesday night, which just so happens to be his former high school. He also happened to show up in his full Raiders gear, including his silver and black helmet, because why wouldn’t he?
The Giants picked up a new player early Wednesday, claiming former Cubs’ right-hander reliever Pierce Johnson off of wavers after he was designated for assignment by Chicago last week. Johnson, a first-round pick by the Cubs in 2012, has spent the majority of his career in the minors, but did make one appearance for the Cubs this season. He gave up two runs and two hits, but struck out two over one inning pitched.
After a rough start to the season, Brian Hoyer has nowhere to go but up after his first two games in with the San Francisco 49ers. After dropping their season-opener to the Panthers 23-3, and following up with a 12-9 loss to the Seahawks in Week 2, the 49ers are the only NFL team besides the Bengals that have not scored a touchdown in the season. That doesn’t bode well for Hoyer, who has at times looked like a liability instead of the temporary solution he was believed to be.
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".
