The Houston Astros have been the best baseball team in Texas this season. No one would argue that as the final three-game set in the Lone Star Series begins Monday night at Globe Life Park. The Texas Rangers, who are 7-9 against their southern neighbors this season, could still take the Silver Boot Trophy with a sweep this week, despite the Astros’ fast start that virtually clinched the division in March.
TCU’s showdown with Oklahoma State on Saturday could mean the season for both clubs. No matter who wins, they’ll have another massive showdown with No. 3 Oklahoma looming but whoever emerges victorious at Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater, Okla., will set themselves up to challenge the Sooners for the Big 12 championship. There is another level at work here, however, and that is the slew of Tarrant County area players on both rosters. No.
Dak Prescott, Jason Witten and other Dallas Cowboys stars sent their well-wishes via video post to the people of Mexico City and Puerto Rico. Both are dealing with recent natural disaster. “Stay strong, Mexico. We’re behind you,” Prescott said in the message, referring to the massive earthquake that struck Mexico City. Witten addressed both countries to start the video message, which was posted by the official Dallas Cowboys account and includes, among others, Ezekeiel Elliott and Cole Beasley.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
