Some things are almost sacredly traditional about the annual NASCAR season finale staged at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Some of those special sights and sounds: ▪ There are the whirrrring/vrrrooom ear-piercing noises that occur as race cars practice and prepare for the NASCAR event that is staged this Friday through Sunday with the crowning of its yearly champions. ▪ There are the pit crews practicing changing tires and filling a car with fuel in a matter of seconds.
For her entire life, Russie Tighe has given a huge portion of herself to women’s sports. From pre- to post-Title IX. From when young men played a multitude of sports while young women had few opportunities to compete. And from when boys and men had unfettered access to the gym while girls and women had the gym door slammed in their faces. Over her 78 years, Tighe has been a teacher, coach and mentor to young women, trying to give them the gift of sports equality.
Marla Rattray, at age 6, just became a world traveler, and that happened with a big grin on her face. Marla had never been on a plane before, but she did just fine the first time as she arrived in Miami from Jamaica to participate in the Northwest Express Track and Field Classic Friday at the Ansin Sports Complex in Miramar. Asked if she was afraid of flying, Marla answered, “No, not at all.” Then she went on to explain the whole experience perfectly and precisely.
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".
