As Jimmy Zacharias of Newark Valley closes in on another season race car title at the Chemung Speedrome track, he has a pair of teenagers right off his bumper. On the regular roads, the teens would be fresh out of driver's ed, but on the closed ovals at local race car tracks, age does not correlate to experience and skill, and the three-eighths of a mile track, along with others Southern Tier, are full of cars with youths succeeding behind the wheels.
In five words, Johnston summed up what Monday was all about. It marked the first day of practice for fall sports teams in New York state, with some beginning regular-season competition as soon as next week. Unlike recent years, players and coaches were greeted by relatively comfortable weather, with temperatures in the 70s in the afternoon after even cooler morning practice sessions. High temperatures are forecast to stay in the low 80s the rest of the week.
Molly Huddle took home 12th place Sunday in the finals of the women's 5,000 meter run at the IAAF World Championships at Olympic Stadium in London. The Elmira native, who was 14th-fastest among the 15 qualifiers in Thursday's preliminaries, finished in 15 minutes, 5.28 seconds for the second-best finish among the three United States women in the finals. Sunday's effort followed an eighth-place finish for Huddle in the 10,000 on Aug. 5 at the world meet, which is held every two years.
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".
