One of my greatest memories growing up was the time I spent at my local community center. It seems like nearly every day I would disappear from home and spend countless hours playing basketball with my friends in the old gymnasium. We’d take a break for some nourishment (a cheeseburger and fries from the burger place across the street) and then go burn it off with another four to five hours of hoops. Recreation centers have a place in my heart.
If the name Bob Gibbons ever came up in a conversation, almost all who knew him would probably make the same statement: “I still have my marble.”Bob was 94 years young when he died peacefully in his Huntington Harbour home shortly after midnight Dec. 23. Services are pending. He was a decorated World War II and Korean War veteran. He served his country through the Michigan National Guard, the Army Air in World War II and the Air Force in the Korean War, attaining the rank of master sergeant.
The annual Fountain Valley High School girls’ basketball fundraiser will have a new look this year. This year, the game will feature a team from the 84th Training Command Fountain Valley Recruiting Army Battalion against a team of Fountain Valley High staff. In past years, the game has featured the Fountain Valley Police Department against the Fountain Valley Fire Department. This is a popular event designed to raise funds for the girls’ basketball program at the high school.
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".
