BEAVERTON, Ore. — Phil Knight says he has the “personality of a runner.” That’s one reason why he does not like to have visitors in his office. For someone who created from scratch one of the most powerful and profitable companies ever, he can be withdrawn and shy, even downright reclusive. This week, however, it will be impossible for Knight to hide in plain sight.
On the morning of Friday, Nov. 10, I arrived at the gym with an extra pep in my step. At long last, the first day of the college basketball season had arrived. Early in my workout, I noticed a television overhead that was tuned to ESPN. The network was showing a graphic promoting the evening’s game between Duke and Elon. The face on the graphic, naturally, was that of Blue Devils freshman Marvin Bagley III.
CHICAGO — When Grayson Allen was growing up in Jacksonville, he fantasized about someday being a great dunker. He would go out to his driveway, set up an upside-down recycling bin and launch himself toward an eight-foot hoop. As Allen got older, his fearless attitude, combined with powerful hops, propelled him into the stratosphere. Most memorably, his daring second-half drives lifted Duke to a win over Wisconsin in the 2015 NCAA championship game.
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".
