Houston's Liu checks out of chess tourney on high noteBovey Liu, the Houston teen who entered the nation's top junior chess tournament as the lowest-seeded player, ended the event Monday on an optimistic note despite a second-to-last finish. Bovey won once, drew three times and lost five matches at the invitation-only U.S. Junior Championship of chess, which featured 10 of the country's top-rated juniors. The 15-year-old Carnegie Vanguard High School student came in ranked No.
Despite a $34 million drop in revenue for the coming budget year, Aldine ISD school board members gave teachers a 2 percent pay raise for the 2017-18 school year, hoping to keep the district's salaries competitive. Aldine could afford the raises and maintain a balanced budget by pulling $44.5 million out of its dwindling reserves. But unless the district makes cuts or receives an infusion of cash soon, Aldine can only tap that "rainy day fund" for a few more years before money runs out.
Houston's underdog entrant is hanging with the pack at the nation's top junior chess tournament. Through five out of nine matches, 15-year-old Bovey Liu has won once, tied twice and lost twice at the U.S. Junior Championships of chess. The Carnegie Vanguard High School student entered the tournament as the lowest-rated player among the 10 entrants. Before arriving in St. Louis, Bovey said he hoped to earn a few draws.
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".
