The ice at Barclays Center has been a hot topic since the Islanders entered the facility to begin the 2015-16 season. On Wednesday, for the first time since sustaining a season-ending left hamstring injury March 31, John Tavares will skate at Barclays in a preseason game against the Flyers. “I don’t try to think about it a whole lot, I think the more you worry about it the more kind of gets in your head,’’ Tavares said Tuesday at Northwell Health Ice Center.
At first glance, which came two seasons ago, it appeared that Greg Bird would become a fixture at first base for the Yankees. At second glance, two surgeries and nearly two seasons later, he still might be the answer. Bird’s three-run homer into the second deck in rightfield against the Orioles on Saturday was his second homer in as many games and fourth since he came off the disabled list and returned to the lineup Aug. 26. He has 14 RBIs in 17 games. Bird no longer is the forgotten Baby Bomber.
As Nassau Coliseum readies for the return of professional basketball with the NBA G-League Long Island Nets, the echoes of Dr. J’s thunderous house calls still resonate on the grounds. Old Nassau Coliseum was once the stamping grounds for Julius Erving and the New York Nets, a team that had the makings of a dynasty had circumstances been different.
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".
