SCHENECTADY — What is going to make Schenectady football click this upcoming season? Solomon Terry didn't have to look far for the answer, but the Patriots new starting quarterback did have to look up, at 6-foot-3, 334-pound lineman Kevin Sears, who was standing beside him. "These guys right here," Solomon said after Monday's practice on Larry Mulvaney Field. "It's probably the best line group we've had in four or five years. They're going to be huge for us. Depending on them, it's win or lose."
BURNT HILLS — Gary Bynon rarely talks to his team about winning volleyball championships in the preseason, but the veteran Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake girls' coach made an exception earlier this week. "A couple days ago, we talked about a goal," Bynon said before his team, with 11 varsity veterans, began practice Thursday. "I told them if we win another sectional championship, we'll have won more than any other team has in consecutive years."
Scotia-Glenville varsity football coach Ron Ashcraft will send his Tartans out for practice Monday after the partial solar eclipse has passed, but was wondering about other Section II teams that will be working out during the rare occurrence. Though it is more common to schedule practices during the fall preseason in the morning and late afternoon and evening in large part to avoid excessive heat, some teams will be out there.
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".
