Shavar Newkirk is a member of a club he never wanted to join, what they have termed “Unseen Hours.’’ The Saint Joseph’s point guard wryly explained his membership in an SJU club that remains far too crowded because four starters missed all or significant parts of last season. “It’s the injured group,’’ Newkirk said. “When we are working out, it’s like nobody is going to see us working this hard.’’Before last season, Newkirk had scored 392 points over two solid, if unspectacular, seasons.
Richie Vega’s father was in Batista’s Cuban military. Following the Castro revolution and after Richie was born, Anibal Vega was sent to prison. His “crime” was political. He had been aligned with the wrong ruler. Vega does not remember exactly how long his father was in jail, but he does remember visiting him there. “We went to see him every weekend with my grandmom and my mom,” Vega remembered Tuesday while seated in a near-empty restaurant at Parx Racing a few hours before the afternoon races.
OCEANPORT, N.J. — At the moment she won the last race of her career on Halloween, 2014 at Santa Anita, Rosie Napravnik was one of the better jockeys in America and among the best female jockeys who ever lived.

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".
