By Majuto OmaryProfessional boxing promoter and manager, Juma "Chief" Ndambile, is plotting a game changer which will see Floyd Mayweather Jr visit Tanzania. Ndambile said that he has already contacted the Ghanaian firm which is coordinating Mayweather's visit soon after his fight against Conor McGregor scheduled for Las Vegas on August 26. He said he was optimistic of the tour. The Ghanaian officials said all that partains to the visit would be known soon after the fight.
By Majuto OmaryThe National Stadium turned into a sea of red and white yesterday when Mainland giants Simba squeezed a 1-0 win over visiting Rwanda's Rayon Sport in a thrilling pre-season match. A 16th minute goal by midfielder Mo Ibrahim is all the Msimbazi Reds needed to sound a warning note to their next opponents in the 2017/18 Vodacom Premier League, which kicks off on August 26.
Simbu claimed bronze in the men’s marathon, just one minute, 24 seconds adrift of Kenya’s Geoffrey Kipkorir Kirui, who won the race, making up for his country’s podium no-show in the last two championships. “He (Simbu) has once again shown that he is as good as the world’s best,” the minister for Information, Culture, Arts and Sports, Harrison Mwakyembe, said yesterday. “Winning a medal at the World Athletics Championships has been my goal for so long.
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".
