AUGUSTA â€” It’s back to .500 for the Cony football team. And with authority. Jordan Roddy hauled in 10 catches for 167 yards and a touchdown, Anthony Sousa threw two touchdown passes and ran for another and the Rams dominated Mt. Blue on homecoming at Alumni Field, 32-8. And yet, in the moments following the game, there weren’t many jubilant shouts and cheers despite the numbers on the scoreboard.
It’s early yet, not even October. But there’s still something to be said for gaining an inside track on the postseason. That’s what’s at stake when the Cony and Mt. Blue football teams, both 1-2, meet tonight. Playoff spots won’t be wrapped up or lost, but as Rams coach B.L. Lippert said, there’s a difference between pulling even halfway through the season and falling into a 1-3 hole and looking for answers.
Jody Farias was on hand to see any parent’s nightmare scenario unfold. She saw her son, Eli, remain on the ground after a hit in a Gardiner Youth Football game Sunday at the Topsham Fairgrounds. She heard him complain in between sobs of pain in his neck, shooting down toward his lower back. And she was with him as he was first taken to the emergency room at Maine Medical Center, then subjected to one test after another over the course of an 11-hour hospital trip.
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".
