AMES — This wasn’t a showcase game, one that kept Iowa State in the national headlines after winning at Oklahoma a week earlier. It couldn’t be. The opponent was Kansas, the Big 12’s football foot wipe. The Jayhawks are 4-61 in the conference since 2010. Yet, you heard predictable pregame concerns about the Cyclones that you hear about not-so-fabled programs that pull off a big upset. Will it fully show up for the next game?
Former University of Iowa basketball player Jarrod Uthoff was released Sunday by the NBA’s Indiana Pacers. Uthoff was among the Pacers’ final 15 players after the team cut three players Saturday, which gave optimism to him making the club’s 15-man active roster. Uthoff, who played high school ball at Cedar Rapids Jefferson, has been with four NBA teams since finishing his Iowa career in March 2016.
While the college football outside world was going nuts over the weekend with four Top Ten teams losing, the Big Ten was as stagnant as a swamp. And now, this week’s B1G performance rankings:1. Penn State (3-0 Big Ten, 6-0 overall): The Nittany Lions didn’t play Saturday, which allowed it to leap over Clemson to No. 2 in the coaches’ poll. That proves the theory that the more vacation days employees get, the more productive they will be. 2.
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".
