Dr. Larry Nassar, the former USA Gymnastics team doctor accused by more than 100 girls of sexual abuse, wrote a letter to the judge in his case this week. You see, Nassar has pleaded guilty to 10 counts of sexual assault. Part of that plea deal is that he has to sit through victim impact statements from all 135 women who accused him. Nassar told the judge he's not sure he's mentally capable of dealing with that.
It's a play never to be forgotten. "I couldn't believe it," Vikings quarterback Case Keenum said. "I couldn't at the time. I was looking for people to hug." A product of Abilene Wylie high school, Keenum was one of the architects of one of the most historic plays in NFL playoff history -- the Vikings 'Minnesota Miracle', a 61-yard touchdown pass as time expired, to beat the New Orleans Saints, and move on to the NFC Championship Game.
As much as many Dallas Cowboys fans want to lose their minds over Dak Prescott's 2017 season, it's important to remember, it is the NFL. Virtually no one has a great year, every year. "I went through it my first season, was 0-11 as a starter," former Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman said. "We were 1-15." "I remember in 1974, they were booing me," fellow former Cowboys QB Roger Staubach said. "In the later years, it made me realize how hard winning in this league was," Aikman added.
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".
