A fieldhouse for the University at Buffalo football program finally is about to become a reality. UB has reached its fund-raising goal to start work on the project and has received approval from the state Division of Budget to begin construction on the $18 million project. Buffalo Business First first reported the state OK of the plan.
Canisius College has hired former University of Florida star Eddie Shannon as a new assistant basketball coach. Shannon becomes the third aide to head coach Reggie Witherspoon, joining Chris Hawkins and Larry Blunt. Witherspoon operated with one assistant less than normal last year after being hired late in the offseason calendar. Shannon comes to Canisius after spending last season as an assistant to Matt McCall at Tennessee Chattanooga.
Rapid-fire thoughts on the 117th U.S. Open golf tournament:Brooks Koepka is a first-time major winner but he won’t be a fluky champion, like Michael Campbell, Lucas Glover and Lee Janzen, among others. He’s a modern bomber athlete. Only 27, he has finished T-21 or better eight straight majors. Bravo to the USGA and tournament guru Mike Davis. A 16-under winner tied a record. But if the USGA set up the course tighter and harder under mild conditions, it would have played unfairly if the wind blew.
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".
