Sometimes you think you’ve turned a corner … only to immediately smash into another corner. That is what happened to the U.S. Men’s National Team in 2017 when we failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. Granted, it’s been some time since the U.S. was a legitimate contender to win the World Cup. That happened at the inaugural edition in 1930. (Only 13 teams were competing as opposed to the 32 today, but our semi-final run remains awesome.) Sadly, we’ve never again reached the semis.
Here’s something NFL owners and players agree on: they want more money. $14 billion in expected revenue for 2017 is nice, but that hasn’t stopped NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell from boldly declaring they should generate $25 billion by 2027. The attempt to reach that revenue level may eventually force everyone to confront two brutal questions:How much sloppy football can fans stand? In theory, $25 billion is attainable.
How does LeBron James (still) do it? He will pass Michael Jordan on the all-time games played list as early as Nov. 9. It’s not just that LeBron reached the pros as a teen: it’s that he when he arrived, he immediately started carrying his team. When he made his NBA debut in 2003, 18-year-old LeBron averaged 20.9 points, 5.5 rebounds, 5.9 assists, and 39.5 minutes per game while winning Rookie of the Year.
CBS Radio (then Infinity Broadcasting) Sacramento - KHTK was my birthplace in broadcast journalism. A springboard for so many talented people. End of an unforgettable era. Where it all began for me https://t.co/iqO6lI0IiX
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".
