One big positive of the holiday season is that everyone gets into the giving spirit and many make conscious efforts to help others. One of the most recent examples comes from the Bold City Brigade, a Jacksonville Jaguars supporters group with the mission of "uniting and organizing Jaguars fans worldwide." The group used Twitter to raise $3,500 and send kids to Sunday's Texans vs. Jaguars game at EverBank Field on Sunday.
It's easy to forget, but our neighbors up north love football too. Of course hockey is (and will always be) Canada's No. 1 sport, but Canadians have a real interest in American football as well. A prime example is the Canadian Football League being around for 59 years now. However, the game is a bit different in Canada. Examples of those differences came in this clip from the 81st Hardy Cup on Saturday. OK, I have a few questions:First of all, why are there two 50-yard lines?
"Investing" for most 12-year-olds usually means chipping in on a large pizza together, or, if you're really ambitious, maybe you all put up money for a communal video game. Mikaila Ulmer is not like most 12-year-olds. According to the Houston Chronicle, the founder of Me & The Bees Lemonade just received an investment of $810,000 from several NFL players.
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".
