All-Star guard Kyrie Irving has requested that the Cleveland Cavaliers trade him, according to several reports. Irving is seeking a destination where he could have a more prominent role, according to ESPN, which also reported that Irving made the request to Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert last week. Irving has played six seasons in the NBA. The four-time All-Star teamed with LeBron James to lead the Cavaliers to the NBA title in 2016, and Cleveland lost in a Finals rematch with the Warriors in June.
When the ski gods bless you with enough snowpack to open the slopes in June, you don’t tempt fate. You make it free for all comers. That’s exactly what will happen Thursday at Killington Resort in Vermont, which will be open for skiing and snowboarding in June for the first time since 2002. Killington’s Superstar trail still has enough snow remaining from a stockpile that was once 30 feet deep.

The skier I am is a middle-aged dad who likes to cruise at a pretty good clip and generally skis first chair to last. The skier I always wanted to be is James Bond. I can hear the snickering now – a guy who wishes he were James Bond, who would’ve thunk it? But in this case it’s not just any Bond, it’s specifically the James Bond played by Roger Moore, who was the skiing James Bond.
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".
