ROUND FOUR of Super League in 2001 marked the end of one, short-lived, era and the start of a more lasting one for Leeds Rhinos. Coach Dean Lance, who had been in charge since the end of 1999, was sacked two days after Leeds’ 18-16 loss to Hull at Headingley on April 6. One of his final acts as Rhinos boss was to hand a debut off the bench to teenage scrum-half Rob Burrow. He was one of eight players aged 20 or younger in a below-strength Rhinos team.
YORKSHIRE marksman Joe Cullen is aiming to make a point on the biggest stage in world darts. The Professional Darts Corporation [PDC] event, which begins at Alexandra Palace in north London today, will be the Bradford thrower’s eighth world championship, but his first as a top-20 player. “It is what the whole year leads up to,” said Cullen, 28, of the 72-player extravaganza which concludes on New Year’s Day.
A break from the tests and trials of the Premier League for a moment to celebrate one of the most enduring individual Stoke City performances. It was 14 years ago today when Peter Hoekstra single-handedly put Reading to the sword, scoring a terrific hat-trick in a 3-0 win at the Britannia Stadium. That included a 20-yard stunner and a Panenka penalty. It was, Martin Spinks explained in his match report, well… brilliant.
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".
