The sky had turned a cheerless shade of grey and the temperature sagged below freezing, but Sam Tooley was dutifully putting his team through its paces this week. He is one month into his tenure as track coach at St. Joseph High School, but he’s made it clear he’s going to show up with an unbridled and unrivaled enthusiasm for every practice – even the ones where the gusting wind hits like a slap in the face. Even on bitterly cold days, Tooley is only too happy to focus on running for a few hours.
When Gregg Anderson reclines in his easy chair and thumbs through the scrapbooks chronicling his 39 years as the boys and girls swim coach at North Brunswick, he is visited by a swirling myriad of memories. There was the time Sharon Csontos took third in the breast stroke to help the Raiders win the state title in 1997. And the time Teddy Zlydaszak seemed to touch third but was placed fifth by the judges. Oh, and of course, there was that yellow and blue blur, Cay Andres.
There was a line of girls on the other side of the net, stretching from the beginning to the end of the fall tennis season, united in their determination to beat Elizabeth Yu. Match after match, they brought their ground games, their net games and their A-games. But try as they might -- with all their might -- they couldn’t figure out a way to beat her. The J.P. Stevens sophomore rose up to meet every challenge at first singles.
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".
