After one of the coldest starts to any winter in recent history, it now appears that the worst is behind us and the rest of winter should be rather meek and mild by comparison. Barring a late-season winter storm, the winter of 2017-2018 will go down as rather snowless despite all the cold air we had in place. We've received less than five inches of snow this winter, and our single biggest snowfall was 2-3 inches.
That was how Burchfield coach Kevin Morrow described Saturday’s 54-46 loss to Mary Hughes in the Class A East Tennessee championship game. He was right. Burchfield went cold. From the free throw line and from the paint. The Rams missed a bunch of foul shots and several put-back attempts from point-blank range as they attempted to close out the two-time defending champion. That, more than anything else, must be acknowledged as a storyline in Saturday’s championship game.
Everybody has their breaking point. For Jean Thorne, an animal lover who can’t stand the thoughts of abandoning a dog, that breaking point came last week, when she saw a small, white head poking from beneath the undergrowth alongside Buffalo Road east of Oneida. It wasn’t the first time Thorne has found someone’s unwanted puppies abandoned near her home, nor will it be the last time. But, she said, enough is enough. “I’m sick of it,” she said. Thorne isn’t alone in her plight.
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".
