On Saturday night, the 2018 NBA dunk contest was held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, where some of the NBA’s best dunkers were on display to show off their hops. This year’s participants consisted of Victor Oladipo, Larry Nance Jr., Dennis Smith Jr & Donovan Mitchell, however it didn’t quite live up to expectations as many thought it would.
This year’s NBA All-Star Weekend is officially underway in Los Angeles, and it’s safe to say Saturday night is arguably the best night of the three with the 3-point, Skills competition & dunk contest all going down at the Staples Center. Before we got to see the likes of Larry Nance Jr., Donovan Mitchell, & Dennis Smith Jr show off their hops in the dunk conest, some of the game’s best shooters took the court & battled it out in the 3-point contest.
It looks like R. Kelly has been evicted from one of his Georgia mansion. According to a report from Daily Mail, the Chicago singer was kicked out of his Duluth mansion earlier this week after he allegedly failed to pay $23,084.90 in back rent and $2,308.49 in late fees. The media outlet reports that the hefty amount was accumulated in only two months.
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".
