Note to the Other Side Of The Fence:We both love football. We both love beer. We have different notions of how the country should behave, but we both love our country. We have some time, we have a TV. Let’s watch a game. You sit on one end of the table. I sit on the other. It’s a big table, with room for everyone’s input. Ideas are the bread of life. Let’s share some. Call me Pollyanna. Say I’ve capitulated. Fact is, I’m tired of yelling. It’s a different kind of yelling now. Text to text, tweet to tweet.
GREEN BAY, Wisc. – A game that could have re-purposed the Bengals season instead kept it careening in the wrong direction. One unforgettable loss followed two forgettable losses. The results were the same, and results are all that matter. New offensive coordinator Bill Lazor called a nice game, did what he’d been asked to do, but his job wasn’t to stop Aaron Rodgers at winnin’ time. Rodgers dropped the Bengals into an 0-3 abyss with two scoring drives within the space of five minutes.
I asked the current manager of the Midland Redskins, the oldest and most accomplished team in the Midland stable of amateur baseball thoroughbreds, to come up with an all-star roster of major-leaguers whose careers started to take shape at Midland. Dave Evans deferred, fearful of omitting a name or two. Fair enough. Let’s help him out. How about this starting lineup:Leading off in right field, Cameron Maybin. Batting second at shortstop, Barry Larkin.
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".
