COLUMBUS — What Alex Renkert does every day comes off as more than a little dangerous. Just weeks ago at the USA Gymnastics national championships, Renkert struck himself in the face with his knee and broke his orbital bone. Crash landings happen all the time… they’re just rare for Renkert. He’s one of the best in the world at what he does. He competes in the double-mini trampoline event, a form of gymnastics not performed in the Olympic Games but still followed around the world.
COLUMBUS – When he plants his feet and leaps into the air, it looks as if Zevan Williams is not bound by the laws of gravity. His 43-inch vertical leap results in spectacular spikes on the volleyball court. It’s a major reason why he was named a high school All-American this year as a senior at Clovis High School in Clovis, CA. His remarkable skills are on display this week in Columbus at the USA Volleyball Boys Junior National Tournament, the biggest volleyball tournament in the nation.
COLUMBUS – This past Saturday, moments after he took the field, he scored his first goal as a Columbus Crew SC player. He celebrated with his teammates, and soon after followed that goal with an assist on another Crew goal. It’s what fans have been waiting to see from Kekuta Manneh. He’s an extremely talented 22-year-old who’s been nursing injuries since arriving to Columbus in April. But his arrival to America… that’s a much longer story.
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".
