And I liked what I heard afterward from Britt and Bennett – sincerity and compassion as they grappled with some heavy issues that are roiling our country. Justin Britt sensed, correctly, that all eyes were on him and Michael Bennett during the national anthem at Friday’s Seahawks exhibition game at CenturyLink Field. Which was OK with him. “That’s kind of the purpose: to make people notice you and make them not ignore it,’’ Britt said.
I don’t begrudge the Seahawks their right to sign Brock, who was facing domestic-violence charges before they were dropped in June. But that doesn’t mean I have to like it. My default would be to err on the side of caution, even if that costs you a potentially valuable player. I heard Brock state that it was a “misunderstood situation” that resulted in felony domestic-violence charges in June related to an alleged incident in April in Santa Clara, Calif., involving the mother of his children.
Five years ago Tuesday, Hernandez was as good as he has ever been, perhaps as good as any pitcher has ever been. Only 23 pitchers in history have thrown a perfect game, and on this day, a sainted day in Mariners history, King Felix joined the club. Felix Hernandez remembers every nuance, every pitch, every tingle. And why not? Five years ago Tuesday, he was as good as he has ever been, perhaps as good as any pitcher has ever been.
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".
