WSU Athletics is offering free football tickets to the people impacted by last week’s shooting at Freeman High School near Spokane, according to a news release. Director of Athletics Bill Moos announced the plan to offer tickets for the upcoming game against the University of Nevada on Saturday. “The events that occurred at Freeman High School last week hit very close to home for many in our area and Washington State Athletics would like to have those affected as our guests,” Moos said.
Fans go to football games to watch the athletes compete; rarely do they pay attention to the referees. Officiating high school football games requires attentiveness, respectability and constant preparation, said Karl Johanson, assigning secretary of the Southeastern Washington Football Officials Association. He knows this well, as he’s been calling games for decades. Students who referee at the high school varsity football level for the first time learn this quickly.
Cougar alumnus and former American football player Steve Gleason was presented with the Regents’ Distinguished Alumnus Award last month. Once Gleason was given the chance to speak, the crowd welcomed him with an extensive applause. He immediately had those in attendance laughing. “I’ll have to admit, until just a few weeks ago, I thought regents was a cafeteria,” he said through his technology on Aug. 10.
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".
