Houston Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt and Houston Astros second baseman José Altuve have been selected as co-recipients of Sports Illustrated‘s 2017 Sportsperson of the Year Award. “We will remember 2017 as much for what athletes strove to achieve off the field as for what they achieved on it,” Chris Stone, Editorial Director of Sports at Time Inc, said in a statement. “While J.J. and José represent two very different paths, they both led to the same destination: #HoustonStrong.
Sunday morning, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that sources have told him and Chris Mortensen that New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo could be fired within 24 hours after the team’s Week 13 game against the Oakland Raiders. Per the report, Giants owner John Mara viewed McAdoo’s bungling of the Eli Manning situation another example of his inability to communicate and the final straw in the owner’s decision-making process to move on.
If we have learned anything from observing Brian Cashman as general manager of the New York Yankees over the past 20 years, it’s that he always has a plan to get what he wants. Step by step, forever moving forward, Cashman has been faultless of late, mainly because he always keeps his target in sight. I have a feeling I can’t prove, no one can.
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".
