The Los Angeles Chargers fans found their voice, even as their team hasn’t figured out how to win. As this forlorn franchise navigates its way along the dual tracks of seeking victory and visibility, what happened Sunday in the Chargers’ second “home” game at StubHub Center was a little odd even as it was entirely familiar. The 24-10 defeat at the hands of the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs was the expected facet of Sunday’s game and the one appreciated by so many in San Diego.
There can be little doubt now about the electricity emanating from the San Diego State football team. This is what the Aztecs had to do. This is the proof required. A skeptical public, the preoccupied national media and provincial coaches who vote in polls. On a wet, windy and wild night, SDSU again perhaps benefited from an in-game interruption having to do with the power of light, this time coming back to beat Air Force 28-24 after a nearly 90-minute lightning delay.
Aaron Taylor had some extra work to do this week before resuming his preparation for Saturday’s national telecast of one of his favorite team’s games. So it was that as he spoke about the San Diego State football program Monday afternoon, Taylor was standing in Grestides market on Columbus and 84th holding a Swiffer pack, some all-purpose cleaner and a trash can.
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".
