The recent decision by Fufa to name African football icon Kalusha Bwalya as head of a vetting committee that will anoint the next Cranes coach delivered a veiled but nonetheless withering rebuke of Ugandan coaches. It particularly - one would imagine - dealt a seemingly impossible hand to interim Cranes coach Moses Basena. Basena may well make the shortlist from which the new Cranes coach will be cherry-picked on November 15, but chances of him striking the bull’s eye are quite diminished.
If you have a thing for opposites, you sure got a hefty share of them last weekend. The Uganda Cranes playing Ghana on a potato garden of a pitch vis-à-vis Rugby Cranes running in try after try on Legends Club’s lush pitch; the assistant referee’s flag shamefacedly triggering a sigh of relief vis-à-vis fans punching the air in tandem with Adrian Kasito following his last-gasp try against Zimbabwe.
When South African referee Victor Gomes reached out for his pocket and plucked the yellow card that will keep Khalid Aucho out of today’s World Cup qualifier against Ghana, there was hardly a scintilla of complaints from the Ugandan dugout at the Borg El Arab Stadium in Alexandria, Egypt on September 5. Tightropes As a midfield enforcer, Aucho tends to live on the edge of the precipice.
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".
