Eight weeks after NBC 5 Investigates revealed advertisements from unlicensed plumbers pushing inexpensive deals on Angie’s List, the consumer referral site has flagged some of those companies, while others have made changes to get in line with city of Chicago regulations. The Indianapolis-based website carries a reputation for weeding out unscrupulous or unqualified operators. Likewise, home repair companies fight—and pay--to get their names front and center on Angie’s List search results.
Oster retired in 2006 as the winningest coach in school history, but he has since returned as an assistant. Buehrle was one of five future Major Leaguers he coached at Jeffco, as the school is known around the St. Louis area, and you can hear the excitement in his voice when he talks about the White Sox retiring his No. 56 this weekend. Oster can't recite every detail from the Pujols-Buehrle matchup, but he'll never forget the essence of it.
"The lefty either has it, or he has a strong arm and you're trying to help him find it,'' Jerry Manuel said. "Buehrle had it. He had it. He had it up here [in his head].'' Manuel was the White Sox manager when Buehrle almost won a Major League job in his first professional Spring Training, less than a year after pitching for Jefferson College, and when he made his debut as a 21-year-old reliever midway through the 2000 season. "We were begging for Buehrle,'' Manuel said.
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".
