When Lennox Lewis described the boxing mismatch between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor as a “farce”, he summed up what a lot of people in the sport really think. The reality of this clash is that both men are in it to make money, not to make war. Mayweather will break Rocky Marciano’s record by retiring undefeated after his 50th fight and make millions of dollars in the process. McGregor will complete his journey from Ireland to the Promised Land and set himself up for life financially.
1. CaddyshackA movie about gophers as well as golfers, Caddyshack was sold to Hollywood as “National Lampoon’s Animal House on a golf course”. And they weren’t joking. Featuring an unproven comedy cast from Saturday Night Live (including Chevy Chase), an old-school stand-up comedian who had never appeared in a movie before (Rodney Dangerfield) and a first-time director (Harold Ramis) who admits he didn’t really know what he was doing.
I want to tell you a story. It's a story about a man called Don Katz, who spent 20 years as an award-winning journalist (for magazines such as Rolling Stone and Sports Illustrated) and the author of a few bestselling books. And Katz was in love. Not just with his wife, Leslie, but with the spoken word.
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".
