The Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in Red Hook will be transformed this weekend into a speedway featuring 20 cars buzzing around at up to 140 mph. Formula E’s New York City ePrix will become the first auto races in modern history within the five boroughs. Not familiar with Formula E? The series, which uses fully electric, single-seater cars, is only in its third season of existence. The New York City ePrix will be a two-race event — one Saturday, one Sunday.
As silly as it may seem to ask this about a team that has won 27 championships, the question is still appropriate. Are the Yankees really this fortunate? Just months after the baseball world watched a rookie in pinstripes — Gary Sanchez — clobber homers at a historic rate, we’ve been given an encore in the form of a hulking right fielder. As Yogi Berra would say, it’s déjà vu all over again.
Just how many people do you suppose were ready to roll the closing credits on ex-big league pitcher Jamie Moyer’s career more than a decade before it finally ended at age 49? How about 45-year-old Jaromir Jagr, who has supposedly been in the twilight of his NHL career for about a third of it now? Lately, the chorus has been growing for the Giants to draft Eli Manning’s successor, possibly as soon as next week. But what’s the rush?
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".
