2017 has been another unforgettable year. From Mother Nature's unrelenting fury repeatedly on display to political and civil unrest reshaping the globe to Barack Obama handing off the reins of this country to Donald Trump, the news cycle has been prolific. The Associated Press' photographers were there to document much of it. With the year winding to a close, here's a look at 150 of AP photographers' most enduring images from 2017 in chronological order.
While Sabah Homasi only spent the first decade of his life in East Brunswick, he has vivid memories of growing up in the Garden State. He and his friends from the neighborhood turned the street he lived on – Noel Lane – into their own athletic field, whether it was a baseball diamond, soccer pitch or basketball court. "We played everything," Homasi recalled via phone Tuesday. So at the age of 10, when his family left New Jersey for the pleasant confines of the Sunshine State, Homasi was crushed.
RED BANK - Even during the most challenging times of Frankie Edgar’s mixed martial arts career, the Toms River native tries to remain grounded. So it was no surprise Tuesday that even less than two weeks after an injury forced him to withdraw from a main event payday and championship opportunity, Edgar was sharing a bit of the good fortune that a decade with the Ultimate Fighting Championship has afforded him.
So snow meant my 15-minute drive took 45 minutes. On the plus side, that meant I was in the car for the final 30 minutes of Mike Francesa on WFAN.
Just one last commute improved by Mike.
My spoiler-free #TheLastJedi review: It is the most surprising and fearless #StarWars movie and I loved it not only for its audacity, but also its many pitch-perfect moments/performances.
My spoiler-filled thoughts, as well as critiques, are below: https://t.co/b1eIGXZoFK
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".
