Redditor reddripper put together this excellent map of what "the beautiful game" is called around the world. It's based on language etymologies. All the pink countries call it "football," or some literal translation of "football." All the blue countries call it "soccer," or some translation of "soccer." All the green countries call it something else entirely. The takeaway: Americans aren't the only ones who don't call it "football." Not by a long shot.
Manchester City is drawing up a safety plan for the 3,000 supporters who will travel to Italy when the team plays Napoli on Nov. 22. City is most afraid of Napoli's "Ultras" — a lunatic group of diehards who consistently stab visiting fans outside the stadium. Three Liverpool fans were slashed at Napoli last October. And six Bayern Munich supporters were stabbed by Ultras before a game last month.
Kacy Catanzaro became the first woman to complete the Dallas course on "American Ninja Warrior" — an NBC show — on Tuesday night. The 5'0", 100-pound Catanzaro was a gymnast at Towson, and she's clearly an incredible athlete. She just went out and obliterated this obstacle course. She traversed a pool with only rings and pegs: She climbed up a ladder-type thing using only a pull-up bar: She jumped from iron contraption to iron contraption: She did this for the finale: Amazing.
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".
