Stephen A Smith went on and on during First Take Monday morning, pondering as only he can, why Jerry Jones would take so much time out of his speech to mention Tony Romo. A man Stephen A Smith diminishes to a guy who never won anything. I can only imagine the disappointment in Smith’s eyes if a child of his wasn’t valedictorian. I mean, the embarrassment the family must feel!
Athletes were on display in Miami on Monday night. It has always been, without question, my favorite of the All-Star skills challenges. Way better than anything the other sports have to offer. What we saw Monday night was nothing short of lapping the field in this category, even if the format is completely absurd to not have the Top 4 advance. But it’s the men we saw that stand out.
In the 117 year history of the U.S. Open, our National Championship, there have been 2 players to finish at -10 or better. There were 7 this weekend. Its time to forget about broadening your footprint, U.S. Open, and just go back to the same courses you’ve been at for 117 years. There’s a reason the British sticks with the same handful courses in its rotation, and there’s a reason why the U.S. Open has hit some speed bumps of late.
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".
