There will come a team when athletes who kneel or sit during the national anthem no longer will attract attention. A phenomenon is new and then, overnight or during the off-season, it is not. Marshawn Lynch didn’t attract much attention when he sat during the anthem Saturday before his Oakland Raiders lost 20-10 to the Arizona Cardinals. Before Seattle’s 48-17 victory Sunday against San Diego, the Seahawks’ Michael Bennett, whose father served in the military, chose not to stand.
I went to my first Major League Baseball game last week in more than a decade. Target Field reminded me of BB&T Ballpark. That’s a compliment. There were seats for the serious fans. There also were plazas for the socially minded and the guardians of bored kids. Minnesota was down 4-2 and used five home runs to win 9-4. The victory was the Twins’ third straight, and they would go on to win four more without a loss. Yes, Los Angeles Dodgers. They’re coming for you.
North Carolina will meet the NCAA Wednesday in Nashville. When the NCAA investigation began I think Vinny Testaverde was the Carolina Panthers’ quarterback. The NCAA began to dig into North Carolina seven years ago. Then it would find something new. And it would dig again. The crux of the NCAA’s complaint is the school’s shadow classes and in a shadow department. Good grades were waiting. All an athlete (and several non-athletes) had to do was show up and claim one.
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".
