Some Bears fans think the team gave away too much when it traded up to get Mitch Trubisky in the 2017 draft. Some were underwhelmed by his rookie season. But most everyone who cares about the Bears seems to be on board with at least the idea of Trubisky: a young, physically talented quarterback who, if the planets align correctly, could end up being a fixture for 10-plus years. That idea – that ideal – is what every team wants. It’s what the Bears have wanted for decades.
Oh, it should be lovely. I believe we’re going to see heightened player protests at the Super Bowl over race and injustice, thanks to President Donald Trump’s recent and alleged used of the phrase “shithole countries” to describe Haiti, El Salvador and African nations. That the game will be played on Feb. 4, a few days into Black History Month, only adds to the probability of another protest. That means two head coaches will have to deal with a perceived threat to team unity.
I waited until May 8, 2017, to remind the Cubs that the 2016 season was over and that the merrymaking should stop once and for all. I thought waiting five weeks into the season showed a lot of restraint on my part. The defending World Series champions were 16-15 at that point, having just been swept in three games by the Yankees at Wrigley Field. In a column, I called it “a reminder that this season isn’t going to be one of those high-end boat cruises along the Danube.
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".
