Just when you think you have seen it all in the NBA, like a top three star leave his team to play on the one who came back from three games to one down to beat him in the playoffs, here comes Kyrie Irving with a new level of self entitlement. The Cavaliers were reportedly calling teams to see what they could get for him in a trade, which upset Irving. The disgruntled point guard then went nuclear. Please trade me now, was the sentiment.
Kyrie Irving is now singing songs on snapchat about “coming home, while wanting to be traded out of always-in-the-finals Cleveland. Some have speculated Irving is trolling LeBron James and his Sports Illustrated cover. Most are simply wondering, what is wrong with Irving? On the one hand, I appreciate someone who wants to prove to the world how good they are at their special talent. On the other hand, Irving is playing with the best player on the planet and gets to touch the ball all the time.
Bryan Bickell was forced to retire after 10 seasons in the NHL when he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Bickell ended his playing career in style, scoring the first goal in a shootout in his last NHL game with the Carolina Hurricanes. It was an emotional moment for Bickell and his teammates, one that hockey fans will not forget. These days Bickell is nearly just as active as he was playing in the NHL. Bickell is doing his best to get the word out on MS while sharing his story.
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".
