Wednesday morning at 10 a.m. the Vegas Golden Knights will submit their picks for the NHL’s 2017 expansion draft, plucking one player from all 30 existing teams to serve as the foundation for the new franchise. It could drastically alter the landscape of the league. [Golden Knights finally reveal their uniforms and Twitter was not impressed]The official roster announcement will be made during the NHL’s awards show, held Wednesday night, fittingly, in Las Vegas.
The Pittsburgh Penguins reaped the rewards in holding onto Marc-Andre Fleury beyond the NHL trade deadline, hoisting the Stanley Cup for the second straight season. But now the bill is due. The Penguins need Fleury off the roster in some fashion before they can submit their list of players to be protected from the upcoming NHL expansion draft, lest they lose rising star netminder Matt Murray to the upstart Vegas Golden Knights. The rub?
NFL overtime is getting shorter. If there are more tie games as a result, the football-watching public is going to have to live with it. Owners of the 32 NFL teams, meeting Tuesday in Chicago, voted to ratify a proposal by the rule-making competition committee to reduce overtime from 15 to 10 minutes in the preseason and regular season. [From March: NFL overtime change would have zero impact on anything]Postseason games are unaffected, and other overtime rules remain unchanged.
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".
