Cycling! Doping! The Tour de France! We get to mush all those words together once again because four-time Tour winner Chris Froome, cycling’s best rider since Lance Armstrong, failed a doping test during the Vuelta a Espana last September. Team Sky reported Wednesday that Froome tested positive for double the levels of the asthma medication salbutamol permitted by the World Anti-Doping Agency.
The Steelers’ hide-and-seek touchdown celebration was my favorite in a season of outstanding touchdown celebrations. The celebration had story; it had feeling. The acting is really, really good. Le’Veon Bell totally sells the pee-your-pants anxiety of a kid trying to find a hiding spot in time. JuJu Smith-Schuster plays his role as seeker with all due seriousness. And when Smith-Schuster finds Bell, you can hear them giggling in your head. It’s all so great.
In a 51-23 loss, perhaps we should quickly go over what went right for the Chicago Bears against the New England Patriots. Matt Forte had another good game, rushing for 114 yards and catching a 25-yard touchdown pass from Jay Cutler in the first half. Then Martellus Bennett had an impressive touchdown grab on the Bears' second score, making a grab in the end zone while essentially being tackled by a defender.
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".
