– Tony Granato gets it. He understands why so many people still are lamenting the NHL's decision to skip the Winter Olympics, because he also loved watching the world's best players chase the gold medal at the past five Games. But the coach of the U.S. men's Olympic team loved the 1980 Miracle on Ice, too.
– U.S. Olympic Committee CEO Scott Blackmun said Monday he supports the rights of athletes to express political opinions. But he noted that the Olympic Games prohibit political speech or protests of any kind, making it unlikely that American athletes would kneel during the playing of the national anthem during medal ceremonies at the upcoming Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Blackmun, speaking at the Team USA Media Summit, was emphatic that the USOC will not muzzle its athletes.
As pleased as Bruce Boudreau was with Thursday’s 1-0 victory over Winnipeg at Xcel Energy Center, the Wild coach got an even bigger lift when Zach Parise was cleared to practice Friday. Parise has been dealing with a back injury since training camp started a week ago. The winger has yet to participate in any practices and has instead been skating before or after the team sessions.
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".
