When I met Miguel for the first time a year ago, he was managing Dollar Variety at 1211 Chestnut, where he said that shoplifting was rampant. I thought of him last week when I heard about the UCLA basketball players who shoplifted designer stuff from high-end stores while on a team trip to China. The sticky-fingered freshmen – LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hall – faced up to a decade in prison until Donald Trump intervened on their behalf last week.
THE BEST STORY I heard this week was the tale of star-crossed lovers whose affair began as teens, right here in Philly. Their relationship was severed by their families when the girl became pregnant with a son. The boy fled south, the girl stayed here and raised the child with the help of relatives. Forty years passed. Each had serious relationships. Through circumstances neither could've predicted, the couple reunited over the summer and the son met his dad for the first time.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is negotiating a new contract for himself. ESPN just reported he asked for an annual salary of almost $49.5 million, plus health care for life for his family members and unlimited lifetime use of the NFL’s private jet. You know why he made such a fat ask, don’t you? Because he knows the $14 billion NFL can afford it. You know what else the NFL can afford? To allow Super Bowl “watch parties” inside the hometown stadiums of the two teams that compete in the big game.
@emenyonu99@davidfrum But why do THESE bother you so much? Your Twitter feed is full of retweets of stories about people who have been accused of things but also vigorously deny them. Yet sex-related accusations appear to concern you more than these others. Just wondering why?
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".
