I, like you, know this will never happen. I, like you, can only dream for this to happen, but I am still going to ask for a belated Christmas gift. Usually it’s St. Nick who gives the presents, but in this instance I want St.Nick to be the present and William Clay Ford Sr. to be the gift giver.
It's a great year to be a safety in the NFL draft. LSU's Jamal Adams has a good shot at being the highest-drafted safety since Eric Turner went at No. 2 overall over 20 years ago. Connecticut's Obi Melifonwu (a safety built like a linebacker and who runs like a corner) is shooting up draft boards like a rocket. Given that, it isn't a huge surprise that Xavier Woods of Louisiana Tech is getting lost in the shuffle a bit. Woods doesn't have the speed or size of Melifonwu or Adams' pedigree.
The United States are seeking back-to-back friendly wins over Russia when they play host to head coach Elena Fomina's side again on Sunday, having already beaten the Europeans 4-0 on Friday. Crystal Dunn and Allie Long each scored braces to seal a comprehensive win over Russia at the Toyota Stadium in Texas, but the wounded party will be looking to restore some dignity for the rematch in Houston this weekend.
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".
