Oklahoma City begins its final road trip of the season Wednesday with a two-game swing on the west coast starting with Wednesday's game against Reno. After last Sunday's 2-0 victory over Tulsa, the Energy is now in eighth place in the United Soccer League Western Conference standings and would qualify for the final playoff spot if the season ended today.
David Robertson of Poteau thinks duck season in Oklahoma should start later and run uninterrupted without a split. A biologist for the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation whose primary focus was waterfowl management, Robertson never could get his supervisors to agree with him before his retirement in 2014. He still hasn't changed his mind. Ducks are arriving in Oklahoma later and later each year, Robertson contends, often in the first week of December when the hunting season is closed.
What happened to the Energy last Sunday in their 0-0 tie against Vancouver was the equivalent of a baseball team having runners reach third base all night, but never scoring a run. Oklahoma City set a club record for shots on goal (25) and corner kicks (15) in the game but missed an opportunity to gain ground in the chase for the United Soccer League playoffs. The Energy are still on the outside looking in with six games remaining.
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".
