Allen Iverson is the champ, pound for pound, inch for inch, however you want to measure his scrawny body. I have been writing sports in this City of Brotherly Love and skimpy trophy cases for 42 years, and I have never seen anyone like Iverson, when it comes to forcing folks to take sides. Love him, hate him, scold him, embrace him, criticize him, praise him, he loves being in the crosshairs of controversy except for those moments when he hates being in the crosshairs of controversy.
BOBBY CLARKE'S daddy remembered that trip to Winnipeg. Long, scary trip, because the doctors were going to check out his son for diabetes. "All the way from Flin Flon," Bobby Clarke's daddy said, through the champagne mist in the Flyers' clubhouse. "He'd never seen the bright lights of the big city.
Public forums are wonderful, grass-roots democracy at its best. Public forums about using public money to build ballparks are special, right up there with "America's Funniest Videos. " All that anger, all that venom, all that Not in My Back Yard outrage. So few meaningful questions get asked, so few meaningful answers are given.
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".
