Froome on the day he took the test during La Vuelta in September Simon Gill/Action Plus via Getty ImagesChris Froome was counting down the hours to a World Championship time-trial in Bergen, Norway, when the email — more like a ticking bomb — dropped into his inbox. Never mind the Tour de France, La Vuelta or the bronze medal that he would claim later that day at the climax of a historic year, Froome was suddenly facing a very different battle, one as critical as any he has fought on a bike.
Watching the best player at work in English football, Kevin De Bruyne, is to marvel not only at his technique as he manipulates the ball unerringly to a Manchester City team-mate, but also his vision in seeing the pass in the first place. His reverse pass down the inside-left channel to Leroy Sané for Raheem Sterling’s goal against Stoke City last month, taking out five defenders, was played without looking up, with Sané obscured anyway, and yet it was perfection.
The full turbulence behind Eni Aluko’s relationship with Mark Sampson and the England women’s squad is laid bare in documents seen by The Times, including allegations of hair-pulling, team-mates refusing to share rooms and complaints of bad behaviour from other senior players. Aluko has claimed that her England career was brought to a “premature and unjustified end” in 2016 after she complained about discrimination and “a culture of bullying”.
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".
