The NBA regular season doesn’t tip off until October 17, but basketball fans have another date circled on their calendar a month prior on September 19. That is the release date for NBA 2K18, the most popular NBA video game on the market and one that appears to have made some significant upgrades over the past year. In 2K18, the graphics look cleaner and the game modes offer much more realism when it comes to how free agency and the NBA Draft are experienced.
INDIANAPOLIS — Elton Sawyer laughs. It’s all NASCAR’s Vice President of Officiating and Technical Inspection can do when I ask how much the inspection process has changed compared to what it was 10 years ago. “A lot,” he says while holding his phone in front of him, refreshing a program that offers live updates on the inspection status of all 40 cars in the field, and whether they’ve passed or failed at the five inspection sites behind the garages.
Winning a championship and getting the proverbial monkey off of his back last season has brought back the old Kevin Durant. This is the KD that claps back at those criticizing him on Twitter, crushes Knicks fans’ dreams, and openly discusses why LeBron James can’t be traded by the Cavs with Lil Dicky. Durant’s old Twitter account is the thing of legend, but for a few years he’d taken a step back. Now, with a ring on its way, he’s back to being himself, having fun and letting his opinions be known.
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".
