As Linda Wang begins her second year in St. John’s University as one of six players on the women’s golf team, she can’t help but look forward to a new academic year while reminiscing about what brought her there. Wang has played golf since she was 14 years old. She credits her father and godfather, Jerry Lee, for inspiring her to become a golf player. “My godfather really got me started on my fundamentals and my father introduced me to the game.” Wang said.
A native of South Jamaica, Curtis McDowald is not too far away from home as he begins his senior year at St. John’s University and his third consecutive year on its fencing team, in the epee category. He told the story of his first match nine years ago, one that he recalls as vividly as if it were yesterday, and considers a turning point in his life. McDowald, then just 12, went against a 6-foot-7 boy who was about 17 years old.
Mounted Police Officer Derek Ghee of the NYPD was grooming Chief, a golden brown, 5-foot-9-inch gelding he rides each day. “I wanted to become a cop since I was a kid because of these horses, and now it’s been the best five years of my life,” Ghee said. “I can’t believe I get paid to do this.”Similar sentiments were shared by the other officers in the Troop F barn, located in Cunningham Park.

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".
