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.
For 41 years, Jesse Holt was the main presence presiding over the Northwest Express Track and Field Classic. Rightfully so. Holt founded the meet, was the man who kept the meet running year after year and, undoubtedly, was the person who loved the meet more than anyone else. This year, Holt will not be at the meet — except in spirit. Some four months after last year’s event, Holt, age 73, died of a heart attack.
Possessing the No.2 seed in the Miami Open is a pretty nice spot to occupy. However, being No.2 in a singles tennis match is definitely not a nice spot. However, that's what Kei Nishikori of Japan had to accept on Wednesday afternoon as a string of mishits led to him being upset by Fabio Fognini of Italy 6-4, 6-2 in the quarterfinals of the Miami Open on Key Biscayne.
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".
