New York City is buzzing about the Knicks again, thanks in no small part to the team's tallest player. Kristaps Porzingis, the 22-year-old forward from Latvia, has become the new face of the franchise and he is running with it. At 7-foot-3, he towers above most of the NBA and plays the game of basketball with a finesse that defies conventional wisdom about players that height. “There’s nothing like him.
The UFC’s return to Madison Square Garden once again made history Saturday night. Three championships changed hands in the same night for the first time, one of which made Georges St-Pierre a two-division champion. After Conor McGregor pull off the same feat in midtown a year ago, this might seem like a regular occurrence. On the contrary, they are just the third and fourth men who’ve captured UFC gold in two weight classes.
Given the long shadow New York City casts, New Jersey tends to be an afterthought on the national stage. Considering the New York Giants and Jets play their home games across the Hudson River in East Rutherford, that’s not breaking news. But it’s in part why UFC 217’s Mickey Gall, of Green Brook, New Jersey, doesn’t mind the idea of beating up Queens resident Randy Brown at Madison Square Garden on Saturday.
@pcatapano I'm thinking of starting a wildlife preserve that brings these majestic creatures back to life. We could charge admission and all the kids can come and see. Maybe set up shop on an island. I see no holes in this plan.
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".
