If you’re not familiar with college basketball, here’s a quick recap: the University of Maryland-Baltimore County not only pulled off the greatest upset in the history of the NCAA Tournament, they demolished their opponent, the University of Virginia, by 20 points. So, how does that feel?
Dana White, the president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, is now a playable fighter in EA Sports UFC 3 and as players know, that makes a very weird encounter now possible. Weigh-ins and news conferences are part of EA Sports UFC 3’s many presentational enhancements. You can import fighters into a career mode where they are most often seen, but I’m not sure exactly how you can get two Dana Whites to go at it, separated by himself (themself?).
My strongest criticism of Star Wars Battlefront 2 was that I simply didn’t know what its priority was. The game’s opaque progression system, tied through a random draw of buffs out of loot boxes — whether or not they could be bought for real money — drew attention away from what really is a strong-playing first person shooter made by a studio that does it very well. The changes announced today, coming March 21, directly address Battlefront 2’s misplaced priorities.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day to my grandfather, Col. James B. Barrett USMC. His dad was a brakeman on the IRT. Granddad was in Special Officer Candidate School 1944 at MCB Camp Lejeune, the finest class of second lieutenants ever commissioned. And the most graceful man I've known.
@DCDeacon Who knows, if UMBC beats Kansas State, Odom could be the next Shaka Smart. I love how they just went for broke and hung a jaw-dropping total on UVa in the second half. They just said, “We’re gonna play our game."
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".
