SAN DIEGO — Stanford Coach David Shaw was curious to see how his football team would react after being “punched in the gut” with a rough loss at USC last week. On Saturday night, he got an answer but this time, it probably felt more like a punch. After a bizarre 15-minute delay caused by a bank of lights going out at aging San Diego Stadium, the Stanford defense lost a four-point lead by giving up a late touch. San Diego State 20. Stanford 17.
Trainer Simon Callaghan was looking for an excuse not to run Moonshine Memories on Saturday in the Grade I Del Mar Debutante. The 2-year-old filly had just raced back on Aug. 19, winning in her debut on the same Del Mar track and Callaghan had some trepidation about racing her so soon again.
Coming into the Harry F. Brubaker Stakes at Del Mar on Wednesday, there were some interesting questions swirling around trainer Bob Baffert’s 4-year old colt Cupid. Was he best suited for a mile or 11/4 miles? Would San Diego racing fans see the horse who won last year’s Indiana and West Virginia derbies and, most recently, the Santa Anita Gold Cup in late May? Or the one who ran badly in last year’s Arkansas and Pennsylvania derbies?
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".
