When you think about the history of basketball, there are a great number of Jewish players, executives and broadcasters that have been a part of the sport like Red Auerbach, Larry Brown, Red Holzman, Ernie Grunfeld, Sue Bird, Dolph Schayes, Nat Holman, Nancy Lieberman, Marty Glickman and Jordan Farmar. And that’s just to name a few.
It wouldn’t be a stretch to think that Sloane Stephens might own an “I Love New York” t-shirt. After all, it was in New York where she won her first grand slam title, a straight sets win over fellow American Madison Keys at the U.S. Open back in September. Stephens now loves New York so much that she’s not waiting until next summer to come back. She’ll be here in a couple of months.
I’ll never forget Sept. 24, 2010, because it was a day that continues to define my career as a sports reporter in the New York area and it’s something that I’m still asked about to this day. It was my first year as the New York Jets beat reporter for WFAN and I had already experienced some drama during training camp with the Darrelle Revis holdout. But just a few weeks into the season, there was more when wide receiver Braylon Edwards was arrested for DUI.
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".
