"You got Le’Veon Bell with your first pick? Congrats!" "You’re gonna win your survivor pool this year thanks to what strategy? Tell me more!" A new NFL season starts tomorrow. You know what that means: you will, at some point in the next five months, be overcome with the urge to tell people about your fantasy football team. But remember: there are very, very few instances when people actually want to listen to you talk about your fantasy football team.
"This is the best part of fall," says comedian Rob Riggle (The Hangover, 21 Jump Street, Step Brothers). "Crisp cold weather, smell of burning leaves in the air, grabbing a beer, hanging out and watching college football. Such great memories.”It’s actually late summer, but the rainy weather in New York has brought a fall-like chill to the air. We’re with Riggle aboard the Intrepid, a decommissioned aircraft carrier-turned-Naval museum in New York, to celebrate Dos Equis.
“Since we don’t have history, we need quality.”The story of a great whisky usually begins with a Kentucky bootlegger. Or a tiny island in Scotland. Or a group of bored Irish monks. Basically: a great mythos. Which sometimes makes for a great spirit. But King Car CEO Yu-Tung Lee, who I recently met over lunch on the roof of Taipei’s World Trade Center Club, doesn’t have one of those. Which is what makes his company’s whisky collection, Kavalan, so unique.
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".
