You’ve heard this is a weak draft. Don’t believe it. Sure, the past two years hurled sure things at the four teams lucky enough to snag top two picks in back-to-back drafts – Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel in 2015, then Auston Matthews and Patrick Laine in 2016. Of those, only Laine isn’t a centre, meaning his franchise player potential for Winnipeg has a ceiling. But lucky for the Jets, Laine can shoot a beach ball through concrete and Mark Scheifele’s got the middle covered.
The Discovery is probably a brilliant movie. It’s not brilliant. But it is a movie and brilliant as an adjective (i.e. “Oh, that’s a brilliant movie” or “Ronaldo with a brilliant free kick”) is different than brilliance as a noun. It’s an overused compliment, the kind that gets inserts when “good” or “very good” or “terrific” or “excellent” feel like they’re just not enough or not original anymore. And spoilers beware.
So nice of Mr. Ramsay to settle this for us:The acclaimed chef and fang-haired walking curse Yakbak made that not-surprising proclamation on something called The Nightly Show, a UK program that is foreign but suddenly not really European, just recently. Again, not surprising. Too many chefs have declared Hawaiian Pizza to be some sort of abomination – Anthony Bourdain, one of my favourites, among them – and it seems there’s little reason or rhyme behind the not-original statement.
They should be paid what they're being paid. They're worth it. But way back in the day, you almost had to be a romantic to pursue a career as a professional athlete. Pride was the payoff. It worked for All Star Games, which were only about pride and legacy.
.@RJHenderson7 Battle of the Sexes is a great move. And Don is right -- it merged sports with reality tv and entertainment. It's almost like Bobby Riggs deserves credit for inventing wrestling. He made up a personality and played it up. He pretended to be the villain.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
