Round numbers make for useful sample sizes.Yet, 10 games into the New Orleans Pelicans’ campaign it’s hard to draw many, if any, conclusions about whether they’re in position to compete in the upper echelon of the NBA.If you want to find the positive, it’s easy to spot, considering the Pelicans were buried at the bottom of the Western Conference 10 games into each of the past two seasons.
By Mike Stone As many of you who have listened to me blather on the Southeastern Michigan airwaves for over two decades know, I have always been involved in charity. Whether it was the Stoney and Wojo Radiothons for the Michigan Leukemia Society or the Student Heart Check at Beaumont Hospitals, giving time and effort to these causes makes me feel good. Recently I was introduced to another charity that has struck a chord; it’s called Relentless Detroit.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Nicky Delmonico lined an inside-the-park home run in the eighth inning, his second go-ahead homer of the game, and the Chicago White Sox stopped a five-game losing streak with a 4-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Friday night.Delmonico's fifth homer eluded a leaping Nomar Mazara, bouncing off the wall as the Texas right fielder crumpled on the warning track clutching his left knee.

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".
