By Erik Boal For The SignalGARDEN GROVE — Canyon settled down in time Monday to survive the first Mater Dei run. Rachel Bowers played well enough for the Cowboys girls basketball team to overcome the second surge by the Monarchs at the fifth annual Presión Showcase at Orangewood Academy. But a three-point halftime deficit swelled to 21 after three quarters for Canyon, which couldn’t find another answer for Mater Dei’s pressure defense and depth in a 66-41 nonleague loss.
By Erik Boal For The SignalBURBANK — The opportunity to play for, and finally win, a CIF-Southern Section title is still two months away for the Canyon girls basketball team. But the past two weeks have demonstrated the Cowboys are capable of getting over the hump when it comes to competing in championship games. Canyon won its second straight tournament title Saturday, defeating Los Alamitos, 53-33, in the final of the ninth annual West Coast Holiday Festival at Burroughs High.
FRESNO — One of the most successful days in area cross-country history began with Flintridge Prep's march to a historic fourth consecutive Division V girls' championship and ended with La Cañada's improbable journey to finishing third in the Division IV girls' final Saturday at the 31st CIF State Championships at Woodward Park.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
