As Theresa May winced and stumbled through her much-hyped yawn-fest of a speech in Florence today, it seems the only thing she managed to inspire was the ridicule of Twitter. The keynote speech had been billed by the BBC as one so momentous that it must rival previous Prime Minister’s announcements on the issue. To say May’s anticlimactic efforts didn’t rise to equivalent speeches made by Churchill, Thatcher and Blair is something of an overwhelming understatement.
I can hear the keyboards mashing the words "snowflake" and far worse before I even get to the heart of this lede but it may be time to get rid of the Banjo Bowl name. The home-and-home games between the Saskatchewan Roughriders and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on the Labour Day weekend and the following weekend are fantastic. That should stay. But marketing the name with an absurd origin may have gone on far too long.
Keeping track of all the new names on the Saskatchewan Roughriders roster hasn't been so easy the past few seasons. But this year, the team has a more stable lineup, they're winning games and players like Ed Gainey are making themselves household names. The 27-year-old from Winston-Salem, N.C., leads the CFL with six interceptions.
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".
