But what does an indefinite suspension really mean? The three UCLA players who were arrested for shoplifting in China — an extraordinarily dumb action on their part that goes far beyond a lapse in judgment — appeared humbled, at least momentarily, when they read prepared statements Wednesday, acknowledging what they did and apologizing to all, including President Trump, who intervened on their behalf.
College basketball is under attack, says Jim Haney, executive director of the National Association of Basketball Coaches. And it’s time to do something about it. This isn’t the first time — Haney pointed out that a few years ago, in the wake of appalling graduation rates, particularly with African-American athletes, college basketball fell under heavy scrutiny.
EAST LANSING, Mich. — Had he enjoyed celebrating by himself, Lourawls “Tum Tum” Nairn would have have been a track athlete. Initially, Nairn figured he’d train for the Olympics and use his athletic prowess to climb out of poverty. But the first time the Nassau, Bahamas, native broke the tape in a sprint, he looked around and realized that winning big is no fun when you’re doing it alone. Then he turned to basketball.
@nrarmour Plaschke did a story on @JohnnyGWeir during the last winter games & told an acedote about Weir bringing 5 checked bags & saying, “I do not believe it’s possible to overpack.” Makes me laugh every time I think of it.
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".
