Lay hands on Stirling Hart’s phone and you’ll see he’s got a picture of himself set as the background. A choice like that usually says something about a person. In Hart’s case, it says something about a person and a chainsaw. It’s a full-body shot taken from a bit of a distance. Hart fills the right side of the frame.
The Ottawa Senators are enjoying a strong start to the 2017-18 season without star defenceman Erik Karlsson. Ottawa completed the three-game sweep on its Western Canada road trip for the first time in franchise history with a convincing 6-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers Saturday night to push its record to 3-0-2. Fresh off a trip to the Eastern Conference Final last season, the Senators haven’t seemed to miss a beat, effectively weathering the storm in Karlsson’s absence.
To say the 2017 NBA off-season was wild would be a massive understatement. Superstars like Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony, Paul George, Kyrie Irving, Jimmy Butler and Gordon Hayward all found new homes. It’s unlikely you missed any of those blockbuster deals. But how about that next tier of moves that may have flown under your radar? Here’s a refresher on some impact players who changed teams this summer and the effect they could have on their new clubs in 2017-18.
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".
