The Padres enter their final homestand of 2017 tied for the 7th-worst record in baseball. They have three games against the Diamondbacks and four with the Rockies, who are currently the two National League Wild Card teams. That means they’re either going to move in to the off-season with a nice winning mojo or make everyone hoping for a tank very happy. San Diego made a few roster moves on Monday.
San Diego State asked fans to wear all black for their showdown with 19th-ranked Stanford. Little did they know the stadium they played in would take the blackout literally. The Aztecs came from behind to beat the Cardinal 20-17 on an eventful Saturday night in Mission Valley. SDSU has been working towards being a perennial Top-25 program but to do that they needed a signature win. A moment, if you will. This was it.
The banner that flew from behind a plane above the StubHub Center read what many Chargers fans have been feeling even before the team moved from San Diego to Los Angeles:Spanos may be the worst owner in sports but his team has one of the best tight ends in history. Antonio Gates made long-awaited history and this time but as has happened so many times in his storied career it came in a loss.
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".
