"The border used to be an actual place," wrote poet Albert Dios, "but now, it is the act of a thousand imaginations." In 2015's brilliant "Signs Preceding the End of the World," Mexican novelist Yuri Herrera proved himself to be one of the brightest and fiercest of those imaginations, almost preternaturally attuned to the surrealistic, even mythic potential of border literature.
The Transmigration of Bodies By Yuri Herrera, translated by Lisa Dillman & Other Stories 101 pp; $20.50 There is no one in the streets, no cars, not even wind. The faucet won't give water and the mezcal is running low.
Stan Wawrinka's career has been a case study of persistence and patience with his Grand Slam championship success delayed until age 28. That's the tennis version of middle age. Those virtues served him well in the U.S. Open men's final, particularly in a taut and often fraught match against defending...
NEW YORK: Just like Karolina Pliskova, who lost in the women's final, Stan Wawrinka was one point away from exiting the US Open long before championship weekend. Again, like Pliskova, Wawrinka used his versatile survival skills to wiggle out of the predicament and fought off match point by forcing the issue.

New York: This was a feast for the fickle: If you didn't like what you were seeing at the US Open in the men's semi-finals, just wait a few minutes and let nature take its course. And it did. Novak Djokovic and Stan Wawrinka navigated through a variety of difficult conditions and equally tricky opponents on Friday.

On the witty NBC comedy series "30 Rock," the president of the fictional television network, Jack Donaghy (played by Alec Baldwin), laments the loss of all his key sports programming and comes up with an inspired solution: Tennis Night in America.
There is a reassuring familiarity about the final four men left at the U.S. Open. Defending champion Novak Djokovic of Serbia vs. Gael Monfils of France; and Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland vs. Kei Nishikori of Japan. If you think you've seen this before, well, you have. In July.

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
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".
