A bench in memory of Claire Cloutier will be dedicated Wednesday. COURTESY PHOTONear the shore of Lake Mascuppic in Tyngsboro, Claire Cloutier would yell support as triathletes hit the water to begin their "Try the Tri" triathlon. Cloutier, the race director, was passionate about triathlons -- and fitness. Sadly, Cloutier died last Aug. 8, at the age of 66, at her Tyngsboro home.
It has to be one of the most unique races in the country. Where else can you see 80-year-old runners next to 5-year-old ones? Where else can a 2-mile race turn out spectators by the thousands? Where else can runners be handed a cup of water at the midway point from a former world boxing champion? On Tuesday, the latest John Carson Road Race was held in Chelmsford. Picture-perfect weather greeted the more than 2,000 runners. Personally, it's a race I almost never miss. It's a slice of Americana.
He may be wrong. Dead wrong. But you've got to give Danny Ainge credit for one thing: He has guts. Plenty of guts, in fact. "Trader Danny" has been relatively quiet over the past couple of years. But the general manager of the Boston Celtics served notice over the weekend that he isn't afraid of criticism when he stunningly dealt the No. 1 overall pick. It's one thing to trade the No. 1 selection, though it's rare in any 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 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".
