The first one, for a search on [hassan whiteside] shows a a article he wrote, I personally cannot bring it up, I see ESPN.com come up. But it clearly shows Google knows who wrote the article, which is interesting by itself.

There is a lot going on in the search results for these queries, I am not sure if using these line separators helps or confuses?
