New Torquay United boss Gary Owers may have walked into a full-blown injury crisis as well as the worst start in the club’s history, but he wants to emerge with a slimmed-down squad as soon as possible. The Gulls, bottom of the National League and without a win in the first 11 games of the season, have had to make a series of loan and non-contract signings to combat an injury list which stretched to 10 players in the build-up to Saturday’s visit of Macclesfield Town to Plainmoor.
If you look at the results of the Los Angeles Chargers over recent years, they paint a rather dire picture. In many instances, the Bolts came up on the short end of games they should have won. Flash-forward to 2017 and that disheartening picture is starting to rear its ugly head again. In the first week of the season, the Chargers found themselves having to rally from 17 points down.
It seems no matter where the Los Angeles Chargers play these days, they find a way to break the hearts of their fans. With their first home game at their temporary digs in Carson, Calif., the Chargers went right down to the wire, albeit dropping a 19-17 decision to Miami. Los Angeles (0-2) had a chance to win the game, but rookie kicker Younghoe Koo’s 44-yard field goal drifted just wide to the right. For Miami, it was win number one of the season.
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".
