U.S.A Bobsled & Skeleton announced Monday morning that the 2007 graduate of Barlow High School is a member of the U.S. National Bobsled Team. He will be a pusher on the four-man team driven by Nick Cunningham, the best of the three driver on Team U.S.A. Because of his height, he will ride at the back of the sled. Michener began his Olympics quest in 2012. He had finished running track at University of Idaho and went to a bobsled tryout camp. He made it through and eventually made the national team.
BEAVERTON, Ore. — Every time the Winter Olympics rolls around, one sport in particular seems to grab a lot of attention. Curling has been an official Olympic sport since 1998. At the Evergreen Curling Club in Beaverton things are heating up. They’ll get lots of people who come in to take a shot at curling. The idea is to push a 44-pound stone across the ice into a ring of four concentric circles called the house. The closer to the middle you get the more points you score.
BEAVERTON, Ore. -- Alena Budko and Andriy Kratyuk both just returned from the U.S. Figure Skating National Championships and they both brought home medals. Budko finished fourth in the girls intermediate division Kratyuk finished fourth in the boys juvenile division. They skate for the Skating Club of Oregon out of the Winterhawks Ice Arena in Beaverton. Both spend hours on and off the ice training for competition and both love the sport.
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".
