After a week of canceled sports matches in the Bay Valley Conference due to wildfire related issues, play resumed this week. Locally, the Mendocino Eagles men’s soccer team hosted the College of Marin Mariners on Tuesday. Marin won that match 3-2. But continuing to be the larger and more important on-going story was the devastating “Wine County” wildfires that have raged in Mendocino, Lake, Sonoma, and Napa counties the past week and a half.
Friday evening the Mendocino Eagles women’s volleyball team hosted the College of Marin Mariners in a Bay Valley Conference match. Once again the Eagles did not have the “luxury” of having even one player to sub in off the bench. They again played match with just six players. This group of six was slightly different than the group that played in the Eagles’ previous match against Laney College on Sept. 27.
On Tuesday the Mendocino Eagles men’s soccer team hosted the Napa Valley Storm in a Bay Valley Conference match. Based on pre-conference records, one might have expected a mismatch in the Storm’s favor. Napa Valley came into the match with the only winning record (4-3) in pre-conference play by a Bay Valley Conference team. All other conference teams were on the negative side of the ledger, including the Eagles, with a pre-conference record of 1-6-1.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
