Well, the fairytale is over, folks. The Cal football team’s 3-0 start was as wondrous as it was unforeseen, but we learned Saturday that when the best teams in the conference decide to take Cal seriously — which is, impressively, now necessary — they can quickly make the Bears look like the team we all thought they would be. The No.
It would be easy to sing the praises of the Cal football team and its head coach, Justin Wilcox. A victory against an SEC school, no matter how ugly, is a huge step forward for a team trying to assert a play style and identity that will live on long after this now-promising season. Even if they had to fight and claw their way back to win against Weber State last week, doing the same this week against Ole Miss proved some measure of consistent growth.
Three long air horn blasts signal that practice is finally done. The undefeated Cal football team gathers once more at midfield before everyone embarks on their own Tuesday night. As players leave the field, some in pairs laughing, others getting quick tips from coaches, Kanawai Noa walks alone. Long brown hair bounces on his shoulders as he takes off his helmet, falling below his black beaded necklace. He takes a quick shower, and reemerges in sandals.
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".
