It is not my favourite style to write a column on an event that has already passed.I prefer writing about future events or looking forward rather than backwards.However, I feel an unusual urge to have a say about the Soweto derby between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates played last Saturday.This is not only the biggest football match in this country but actually the biggest sporting event as it is the only one that usually manages to fill up the 94 000-seater FNB Stadium.Why?
Following the splendid display in a 3-1 2018 World Cup Qualifier win against Burkina Faso, many are convinced that Bafana Bafana can beat Senegal in back-to-back matches next month.And yes, I use the words splendid and display in the same sentence with Bafana Bafana consciously.I am one of those who think this mission of qualifying for next year’s World Cup finals in Russia is possible.However, this will depend on which Bafana side turns up for the two matches next month.In a nutshell,...
Itis difficult to write a column based on any national team withoutgetting emotional.Socialmedia platforms went viral following Bafana Bafana’s 2-1 defeat to CapeVerde at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Tuesday night.
I can wait for a new wave of names for children from our neighbouring country such as Resignmore, GoodridanceMore, Robertmore, Gonemore, Freedommore, Godisgoodmore. Thirtysevenyearsmore, Twentyseventeenmore and the like ...tli tli tli
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".
