We're down to the final four in the NFL, and of course the Jacksonville Jaguars are still in it. That defense is ridiculous and Blake Bortles hasn't screwed anything up yet. Good for them! This should be a tremendous upcoming weekend of football. Which means everyone except those four teams is either hiring a new head coach or looking ahead to the 2018 NFL Draft. So let's get a few significant items off the table right away.
We now know the order of the top 20 picks in the 2018 NFL Draft with the regular season in the books. Some surprising teams - Buffalo! - are in the playoffs while others - Baltimore - are not. There will be a lot of coaches looking for work soon, some have already been let go. And there will be some general managers replaced; the Browns and Giants have already brought in outside help.
Derek Jeter is ready to burn down the Miami Marlins to rebuild and cut costs. If he paid attention to the White Sox winter of 2017, there's a quick way to turn solid players on his major league roster into a bright future - and that is expected to be his goal this winter. What follows are six trades I would pull the trigger on to get that rebuild under way quickly. The Padres aren't a big enough spender for Stanton money, but Yelich would be a tremendous addition.
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".
