Lent is a holiday deeply rooted in religious tradition that can be a powerful time of spiritual connection for Christians. But the impact of a period of commitment and self-control can be experienced by non-Christians as well.Religious Studies Instructor Dr. Amy Artman said that in its most basic terms, Lent is a 40-day period (excluding Sundays) of spiritual preparation, backed up from Easter Sunday.
ORLANDO, Fla. - Six subplots to keep an eye on in Sunday's AFC championship game: 1. Tom Brady vs. Jacksonville's pass rush The Patriots signal caller reportedly injured his throwing hand during Wednesday's practice and has been seen wearing a glove in subsequent practices and during Friday's press conference. Despite a playoff resume some consider incomparable, Brady will need to be healthy and sharp against Jacksonville's vaunted defense.
ORLANDO, Fla. - By any measure, the numbers are staggering. This coming Sunday's AFC championship game will mark the seventh straight conference title tilt for the New England Patriots, who will host the Jaguars at 3:05 p.m. With Bill Belichick at the helm and Tom Brady under center, the dynasty in Foxboro shows no signs of ending anytime soon, despite recent reports suggesting discord among the head coach, quarterback, and owner Robert Kraft.
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".
