It's election day in Alabama, and Democrats' last-ditch effort to beat Republican Roy Moore involves famed University of Alabama football coach Nick Saban. Moore faces multiple sexual misconduct allegations and opposition from some established Republicans. But when polls opened Tuesday, he was still leading Democrat Doug Jones by an average of 2 points, according to RealClearPolitics.
The Ball family is going international. LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball both signed one-year deals to play professional basketball in Lithuania. Their father, LaVar Ball, had already pulled both of them out of their respective schools. LiAngelo left UCLA this month after being suspended from the team for shoplifting while in China. President Donald Trump stepped in to help get LiAngelo and two of his teammates back to the U.S. If you remember, Trump and LaVar had a very public spat about that.
High-profile lawmakers are coming to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand's defense after President Donald Trump criticized her on Twitter. This feud started Monday when Gillibrand told CNN Trump should resign in the face of several sexual misconduct allegations. But it's important to note she wasn't the only senator pushing for him to step down. Trump responded Tuesday, tweeting Gillibrand used to "come to [his] office 'begging' for campaign contributions," alleging she "would do anything for them."
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".
