Cal football was winding down from a strenuous workout when strength and conditioning coach Cheryl Cox was preparing to head out. As the players and coaching staff grouped together for an uncomfortable conversation, a coach told Cox to stay. Nobody batted an eye. “It was one of the coolest things I have heard,” Cox says. “There wasn’t even an issue that I was new to the program, a female with the program.
Breakaways are some of sports’s most exciting parts, whether it be a running back escaping a pack of monstrous linemen for a touchdown, a power forward pursuing the rim for an uncontested dunk or, in cross country, an individual separating oneself from a conglomerate of runners. The Bears, both individually and as a team, need all the breakaways they can get to establish themselves as a dominant force in the country — the race to the top begins Saturday.
Cal students know that perfect scores on all your homework assignments mean little if you falter on the final exam. Last season, the cross country team excelled in its smaller races, but underperformed in its final tasks and ultimately missed that “A” mark. After looking gassed out towards the end of the season, coming up short at the Pac-12 Championships, the team will look to prove that it can maintain a better pace in 2017.
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".
