White wisps of clouds hung over the High Desert while the Summit Prairie String Band provided a bluegrass soundtrack on a cool Tuesday evening at Bend’s Vince Genna Stadium. Baby-faced ballplayers, just days into their professional careers, took the field before an overflow crowd of 3,125 eager spectators — many of whom had stood in line for tickets, a line that extended out of the stadium parking lot and to a neighboring grocery store.
CORVALLIS — Crook County was not concerned about facing undefeated Henley on Saturday in the Class 4A softball state championship game. The No. 6-seeded Cowgirls were not worried about trailing after the first inning, nor were they flustered when that deficit grew to four runs after the third. In fact, Crook County coach Jessica Cross said afterward, it was the least nervous she had been all season.
So, what do you actually want to do? Jacob Hollister has heard that question frequently over the years. The answer: Since graduating from Bend’s Mountain View High in 2012, as his football career continued at Nevada, Arizona Western Community College and most recently Wyoming, Hollister has aspired to play in the NFL. Those who had shrugged and asked Hollister about his backup plan stopped asking. They believed. He was bound for the NFL.
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".
