As tensions rise between North Korea and the United States, former NBA star Dennis Rodman is trying to become the voice of reason. "I just want to try to straighten things out for everyone to get along together," Rodman said Wednesday on Good Morning Britain, via Adam K. Raymond of New York magazine. Rodman has made several visits to North Korea and its leader Kim Jong-un.
The most shocking aspect of the NBA's investigation of the Los Angeles Lakers for tampering with former Indiana Pacers forward Paul George is not that the league found enough evidence to slap the Lakers with a $500,000 fine. It's that the Pacers requested an investigation at all. This is not the first time a team has been investigated for tampering, nor is it the first time a team has been found guilty and fined, a league official told B/R.
Milwaukee Bucks forward Jabari Parker was reportedly discussed in trade talks involving New York Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony. On Tuesday, Ian Begley of ESPN.com noted it was unclear whether the Knicks or Bucks brought Parker into the conversation, but there was "no traction toward a deal." Anthony has spent the entire offseason in the rumor mill as New York weighed moving in a new direction with Kristaps Porzingis as the franchise cornerstone.
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".
