Connecticut Open main draw set with few changesNEW HAVEN — Anne Worcester sent out countless text messages and emails over the last couple of weeks with the hopes of adding a couple of top-20 players to the Connecticut Open field. The tournament director finally got one of the big hitters to say yes when French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko requested a wild card.
EAST HARTFORD — There was no grand unveiling or overly dramatic dog-and-pony show when it came time for UConn football coach Randy Edsall to name David Pindell as the Huskies’ starting quarterback. Unlike former coach Bob Diaco, who brought out the four quarterbacks for a press conference when Casey Cochran was named the starting QB in Diaco’s rather forgettable first season, Edsall simply had a matter of fact way of declaring that Pindell has won the position midway through preseason camp.
Thomas has Sun on verge of clinching playoff spotUNCASVILLE >> The mere mention of a potential triple-double brought a wry grin to Alyssa Thomas’ face. During her remarkable run at the University of Maryland, she hit double figures in points, rebounds and assists twice in one three-game span. Four times during the 2017 season, she has been within three rebounds and either three assists or steals shy of authoring the first triple-double in Connecticut Sun history.
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".
