"To be back in the room with them, it's awesome," said Backes, who wore a non-contact jersey. "To be on the ice, to be moving around -- nothing like sitting around and doing a whole lot of nothing for too long to make you feel like you think [you're] never going to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Digit Murphy motions to follow her, down the stairs, around the corner, past a row of portraits. Her own -- face a little younger, hair a little longer -- hangs in the center. Three to the left; three to the right. She points at the pictures. "See," Murphy says. "Only woman on the wall. That's what I did for women's sports." She is not done pointing.
BOSTON -- Boston Bruins forward Noel Acciari spent the last month raising awareness and funds for his good friend and fellow former Providence College hockey player Drew Brown, who had cancer. Brown stopped playing hockey when it was discovered that he had Ewing Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, after having an MRI for a leg injury sustained in 2014. He remained a part of the Friars when they won the 2015 NCAA championship with Acciari as captain.
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".
