CHARLOTTE – The car is stuck in traffic, so Randy Moss and Charles Woodson are talking about waffles. Red velvet waffles, to be more precise. Randy took Charles to the Terrace Cafe after their 5:30 a.m. workout, and Charles had to get the red velvet waffles. They were so good that Charles was still talking about them a few hours before kickoff between the Dolphins and Panthers to close out Week 10 of the NFL season.
TORONTO – Last week, as Josh Smith wrapped up what would turn out to be his final practice with the New Orleans Pelicans by competing in a spirited scrimmage, head coach Alvin Gentry watched from the sidelines and spoke about the 31-year-old forward who signed with the team in late October after the league granted the Pelicans with an injury hardship exception. “He’s a smart basketball player, a good passer, and a streaky shooter but capable of making the three-point shot,” Gentry said.
BRADENTON, Fla. – IMG Academy feels like the evolution of the Cobra Kai gym from The Karate Kid. Everyone there is bigger, stronger, and more singularly focused than high schoolers are supposed to be. The weight room rivals many ACC schools, and signs reminding you to hydrate could’ve easily been put there by Texas football coach Tom Herman. It’s here that Gatorade chose as home for its Sports Science Institute, and it’s here that a group of us are learning about sweat tests for the first time.
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".
