Johannesburg - Clubs will tell you that they only firea coach when there is no alternative. But yours truly will disagree.There are club bosses who are known to be trigger-happy and the results are there for everyone to see.At some stage, Patrice Motsepe, themining mogul who owns Mamelodi Sundowns, fell into this category.
Johannesburg - Some years ago, I saw an old geezer drive an ancient skorokoro bearing an interesting sticker that read: “All parts in a car are important, but the most important one is the nut holding the steering wheel.”I felt like shouting at the top of my voice: “You go, old man!”But on thinking about it further, I felt that it might just turn out to be one of those aphorisms that fly way over the heads of many people.What brings back this chucklesome encounter, you may ask?Going bustWell,...
There was a time when Mamelodi Sundowns seemed invincible.They were a juggernaut that mowed everything that stood in their way.Not only did they win the Absa Premiership title in a canter, but went on to conquer Africa by becoming the African Champions League kings before adding the African Super Cup by defeating giants TP Mazembe of the Democratic Republic of Congo who had won the CAF Confederation Cup.A month ago everyone was prepared to bet their last Rand that ’Downs would again easily...
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".
