OAKLAND — If you needed a victory to save the planet, which all-time Bay Area team would get the call? Those who watched Golden State breeze through the NBA playoffs like it was a Pop-A-Shot game might put their fate in the hands of Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and the Warriors’ force field defense. Others might summon an incarnation of the 49ers dynasty and trust that Joe Montana will pull things out — so long as there are 2 minutes left on the clock. If things get really dire?
REDWOOD CITY — Ty Cobb’s bat is here, resting in the same display case as the lumber once swung by Willie Mays, Willie McCovey, Barry Bonds and other baseball icons. Joe DiMaggio’s contract is here, too, a reminder that the New York Yankees shelled out a whopping $32,500 for their star center fielder in 1940. Keith Hernandez’s glimmering Gold Glove Award from 1979 is across the way, the second of the 11 straight awards he won as one of the best fielding first baseman in history.
SAN JOSE — A teenager without a car managed to travel across the hockey universe Wednesday. Tomas Hertl, the Sharks’ 19-year-old wunderkind, woke up as an Internet sensation after his breakout performance against the New York Rangers. It wasn’t just that Hertl scored four goals. It was that he capped off his night with a goal for the ages, a between-the-legs trick shot that looked like an optical illusion — the miracle on eyes.
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".
