Top two things we’ve decided matter heading into the fourth week of the televised college football season:= Sreamin’ Gus Johnson: God bless your energy. God help you moving forward. Parts of us understand a need to add volume and context to a telecast, to let the viewer know what’s important and what’s just another play. But college football isn’t a 3-on-3 basketball game in some abandoned arena for a FS1 delayed telecast. It’s live news.
Even 44 years ago can seem like yesterday with one raw, big-screen flashback. It was Sept. 20, 1973, moments after grinding out a 6-4, 6-3, 6-3, winner-take-all $100,000 victory over Bobby Riggs in the uber-hyped live televised tennis match at the Houston Astrodome. Tennis legend and Long Beach native Billie Jean King is the subject of the film “Battle of the Sexes,” which is being released Friday.
News of note looking at the past weekend and forward:== The Kings put a lot of time and effort into taking a bunch of players to China for some exhibition games against the Canucks (and leaving some back to face the Ducks in a local exhibition). The least we could do is watch. Both Kings-Canucks games in China have national live coverage. NBCSN has the game from Shanghai on Thursday at 4:30 a.m. with Brendan Burke and Pierre McGuire on the call.
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".
