When Boston College running back AJ Dillon takes a handoff, he's carrying more than just a football. He's carrying his own hopes and dreams, as well as those of his family and New London community. His determination to fight through first contact comes from watching his mother, Jessyca, tirelessly work two jobs to make a better life. His drive to succeed is fueled in part by a desire to be a role model for his supportive hometown.
All three local college soccer programs suffered painful outcomes in the NCAA Division III tournament on Saturday. The Connecticut College men's and women's teams, as well as the Mitchell College men, battled down to the wire in their respective first round games before all dropping tough one-goal decisions. Coach Norm Riker, who guided the Conn women to their third NCAA appearance in four years, summed up the day:"Such a bummer," Riker said. "Tough day for the Camels. Great run for Mitchell.
New London — Without any recent experience, Connecticut College can only imagine what the men's soccer program's first NCAA appearance since 1995 will be like this weekend. The Camels can't wait to find out. "I definitely think there will be level of excitement we haven't experienced before," junior Ben Manoogian said. Coach Kenny Murphy can clue his Camels (9-3-4) in on postseason play before they travel to Oneonta, N.Y., to face Rochester (11-3-3) in NCAA first-round action at 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
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".
