Park City • Jamie Greubel Poser could have had defeat on her mind. Earlier this month, the U.S. bobsled driver finished just off the podium — fourth place thanks to a hundredth of a second difference — on her home track in Lake Placid, N.Y. But instead of dwelling on that loss, Greubel Poser found her mind going back to her late teammate, Steven Holcomb, as she prepared for Friday’s World Cup race at the Utah Olympic Park.
Park City • Lolo Jones knew it would be the last time. Standing at the top of the track at the Utah Olympic Park on Friday night, the 35-year-old hurdler and bobsledder knew she would never race here again. So she told herself to enjoy it. “This is your last time racing in Park City. You better have fun,”Jones said, her breath visible in the frigid air at the finish line. “This is your last time going down this track. You’re never coming back here again … as an athlete.
Turnovers doomed the Utes in last weekend’s loss to Luke Falk and the Washington State Cougars. But if you “really try hard, and wish and hope” can you find enough positives and, possibly, a path for Utah to still save its season? On this week’s episode of Game of Throws, the Tribune’s Utah football podcast, we try — but it isn’t easy.
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".
