Isha Johansen is to bid for re-election as Sierra Leone's FA president despite saying she suffered 'intimidation' and 'discrimination' during her first term. Africa's only female FA president took charge in 2013 and her reign has been blighted by controversy, infighting and the Ebola crisis. "I have decided to run for a second term in office - after careful deliberation," Johansen told BBC Sport. "I would like to finish what I started. There is unfinished business."
A former member of Fifa's Governance Committee has said there were 'serious allegations' concerning the election of Egypt's Hany Abo Rida to the Fifa Council in May. Abo Rida beat Cameroon's Zelkifli Ngoufonja by 50 votes to 4 in a poll organised by the Confederation of African Football (Caf). "(Ngoufonja) alleged that (Abo Rida) threw a party and flew in other delegations from the other federations," said Miguel Maduro.
The head of African athletics says the continent will bid to host the 2025 World Championships. Africa has never staged the biennial event, which started in 1983, despite being home to many world champions. Hamad Kalkaba Malboum says he believes a bid is set to come from one of six African nations. "We are talking with Kenya, South Africa, Nigeria, Algeria, Egypt, Morocco - those countries have the facilities," said the Cameroonian.
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".
