Many people no doubt were heartened by the news on Wednesday that North and South Korean athletes will march behind a unified flag at the Opening Ceremony of the PyeongChang Olympics and field a joint women’s ice hockey team. But among those who greeted it most warmly presumably were NBC Sports executives and their employees, for whom the recent rise in geopolitical tensions in the region was a potential concern approaching the Winter Games.
The Jets, who are coming off consecutive 5-11 seasons and have not made the playoffs since 2010, on Tuesday announced that season ticket prices will decrease next season by an average of 11 percent.

It was halftime on ESPN, so naturally the focus on Sunday night was a replay, followed by a panel discussion, concerning one of most stunning finishes in the history of the NFL playoffs. Oh, forgot to mention: This was at halftime of an NBA game. So it went on a weekend that reminded us that for all of the slings and arrows it has absorbed – some well-deserved, others less so – America’s Game still is football, one of the few things that binds us in these fractious times.
@devlzfan MSG has four channels that it provides HD feeds for. Fios currently carries three of them in HD and one in SD, and it decides which of those is which. Isles were on the non HD channel last night.
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".
