Due to the Dixon at Topsail game being pushed back to Sept. 15, there were only seven games on the slate. Elijah was the only participant to get every game correct! A pair of StarNews staffers — Tim Hower and Jackson Fuller — have the early lead with 14 adjusted points. Please make sure you use the same name each week, so I can continue adding to your season totals.
Week 4 was pretty nice to most of the participants. Big congrats to Alex Riley, CoachC, Wildkat30 and first-time picker Cara Koning for correctly guessing all eight games. Seven other got seven of eight. Tim Hower and Wildkat30 hold the lead with 21 adjusted points. Jackson Fuller and UNCW-1 are each just a game back. Please make sure you use the same name each week, so I can continue adding to your season totals. Your lowest score will be removed at the end of the regular season.
The trend of high scores continued in Week 5 as 10 participants – Bobby, Carey, CoachSolo, GoApp24, Joey Austin, Macdonna, Payton Warren, The Boss Man, Wildcat1 and Yosef38 — got all eight games correct. There are now five players atop the standings. CoachSolo, Jackson Fuller, The Boss Man, Tim Hower and Yosef38 are all sitting at 27 points. Please make sure you use the same name each week, so I can continue adding to your season totals.
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".
