Kentucky Derby contender McKinzie’s previous race before Saturday produced a horse track oddity: a Winner’s Circle without the winner. The inquiry sign began blinking as soon as McKinzie trailed Solomini across the finish line a month ago in the Los Alamitos Futurity. Many observers expected the result to stand — notably Mike Smith, McKinzie’s rider. Smith hopped off and headed to the jockey’s quarters while the horse was led back to the barn.
On the first day after Christmas, jockey Gary Stevens was trying to milk the last teaspoon of energy out of Camby down the Santa Anita stretch. The longest shot in the second race of the track’s 81st winter-spring meet opening day seemingly had secured an unassailable lead. The few in the crowd of 40,023 who essentially bought a lottery ticket on Camby at the pari-mutuel windows could envision a payoff substantial enough to put a dent in their holiday gift-giving debt.
Part two of our three-part series on Black November focused on tax determination and the product/customer mix. But that still is not the whole story. A company’s activities within each tax jurisdiction drive the requirements for whether it must register to collect indirect tax and correspondingly remit the tax. The minimum activity that creates nexus and the need to register with a tax jurisdiction continues to evolve so it is critical to understand your tax footprint in each jurisdiction.
Your final four QBs: Bortles, Brady, Foles, Keenum. Who's the outlier in the group? Think again. At 6-foot-1, much shorter than the rest, Keenum gets picked last for your pick-up playground hoops team. #NFLPlayoffs
Now that damn near every college team holds up four fingers at the end of the third quarter, let's try something new. Like, reach into a piggy bank and displaying for actual quarters. Or hold up three fingers and exit the stadium. #CFBPlayoff
LSU to pay a coordinator $2.5 million per year. Meanwhile, players get "paid" a few gifts at their bowl game. Maybe the coach can round up the players' gift bags in which to stuff his loot. #lsufootball#GeauxTigers
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".
