It's the U.S. versus (most of) the world in this biennial match. Ken Willis @HeyWillieNJ
You might’ve assumed the 2017 golf season ended with the PGA Championship in August. The PGA closed the curtain on this year’s major championships, but hardly sent everyone to the 19th hole for relaxed reflection.The four tournaments that make up the PGA Tour’s Fed Ex Cup playoffs soon followed, capped by Justin Thomas’ big payday last week in Atlanta.
Ken Willis @HeyWillieNJ After seeing a few words here and there about James Franklin the past couple of weeks, I joyfully assumed the Penn State coach was filling a vacuum created when Steve Spurrier hung up the visor to start “consulting” in Gainesville (and Crescent Beach, of course).Last year, Franklin ruffled some fancy feathers when he suggested other Big 10 schools were using Penn State’s horrendous Jerry Sandusky scandal as a negative-recruiting tool. He was probably correct, but...

Few things are as draining as emotional whiplash.Thankfully, you don’t need a chiropractor or prescription to deal with it (unless, by “prescription,” you mean a thick-bottomed glass, tray of ice cubes and that bottle of Evan Williams you keep around for your father-in-law).Regardless of the order in which it arrives — bad then good, or good then bad — it’s eventually draining.
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".
