It was just one win, and just their second this season, but the Sparks’ football team’s win over Elko last Friday is a momentous occasion. It was the first win at home for first-year Sparks coach Brad Rose. And, it was the first time Sparks has beaten Elko in 27 years. Granted, the schools were in a different divisions for many of those years. Elko returned to the 3A after the 2009 season. The Railroaders did not have a great start this season.
FRENCHMAN LAKE: As the water temp gets into the 50s, fish get active. The fish average 14-18-inches and are pulling hard for their size. Both wading and float tubing are the ways to put fish in the net here. Chris Wharton, Stillwater Guide Service, 775-851-1558. TRUCKEE RIVER: The fish numbers tapered off over the summer, but they should be on the bite again this fall.
She is focused, driven and highly motivated. And, once she found out she was a pretty good runner, Alexis Melendrez decided to use those attributes as she got serious about the sport of cross country. She soon became one of the top high school distance runners in the state. Now, the three girls who finished ahead of her at the state meet last year are all graduated, leaving Melendrez — and a few others — to assume the mantle.
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".
