After three weeks of coaching basketball at a new level, Stan Waterman earned the ultimate reward. “Receiving your gold medal while they’re playing the national anthem, we’ve all dreamed about being a part of something like that,” Waterman said. “And it really was an amazing feeling, an amazing experience to have that happen.”It happened June 18 in Formosa, Argentina, after the United States dominated Canada 111-60 in the championship game of the FIBA U16 Americas boys basketball tournament.
Once every six years, it rains throughout Delaware on Aug. 15. How do I know this? Because this is the sixth consecutive year I’ve marked that date by driving around to as many high school football practices as possible. And Tuesday was the first time it rained. Usually, it’s close to 100 degrees. Usually, the coaches and players are sweating buckets. This time, it rained buckets. So late in the afternoon, I made the executive decision to cut the annual Gridiron Tour a little short this year.
Delaware had a double winner in Smyrna’s Sophia Holgado at last week's AAU Junior Olympic Games track and field competition at Eastern Michigan University. The Delaware Elite Track Club member won the girls 11-year-old 1,500-meter run in 5:02.44 and the 3,000 in 10:56.31. Zak’r Roberson of Newark won the long jump in the boys 10-year-old division with a best leap of 16 feet, 17¾ inches. That was eight inches farther than the second-place finisher.
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".
