Manchester United and Real Madrid fans were served up something of a surprise in San Francisco Bay as red-haired restaurant mascot Ronald McDonald led out their teams at Levi's Stadium. The clown character who has represented the McDonald's fast-food chain since the 1960s was entrusted with the match ball before Sunday night's friendly, following in the footsteps of Canadian rapper Drake who performed the pre-match honours before the Manchester derby in Houston two days earlier.
Worcestershire's Ross Whiteley hit six sixes in an over but finished on the losing side after David Willey's career-best 118 helped Yorkshire climb to the top of the NatWest T20 Blast North Group. Willey sent records tumbling with a 55-ball assault as the Vikings, invited to bat, posted 233 for six from their 20 overs at Headingley. Fellow left-hander Whiteley then hit left-arm spinner Karl Carver over the ropes six times in the 16th over, which included a wide.
Arsenal may be steeling themselves for the possible departures of some big names this summer but one player who has definitely no plans to leave is Laurent Koscileny. The 31-year-old who joined the club in 2010 has been the subject of interest from French giants Marseille, but has emphatically confirmed he has no intention of abandoning the FA Cup holders.
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".
