Danny Hultzen starts close in and works his way out. These days he tosses the ball up to 120 feet. Toward the end of some sessions, throws can feel 10 times that far. Now he knows that’s when to slow down. The construction of new-look Davenport Field, expected to be ready for Opening Day next spring, goes on around him. Shortly after Hultzen first left the University of Virginia, he committed $100,000 to the upgrades.
As D.C. United took a water break about an hour into Tuesday’s practice, captain Steve Birnbaum used the time to scream at attacking midfielder Luciano Acosta for his play in the previous drill. Fueled by a six-match MLS losing streak, the team’s frustration had reached full boil at RFK stadium. Throughout United’s stint in the basement of the MLS standings this year, coach Ben Olsen has said the club needs to own its results.
It didn’t take long for D.C. United to dig itself a three-goal deficit Saturday night against the Houston Dynamo. First, rookie Ian Harkes lost track of his man while defending a corner, and Andrew Wenger’s bouncing header gave Houston the lead. Then on successive attacks, United’s back line failed to detect enemy forwards in its box. Mauro Manotas was unmarked when he tapped in from close range.
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".
