Maureen O’Brien recalls walking in Branford one day years ago when a stranger suddenly began making conversation. He knew who she was; she still has no idea who he was. The town newspaper was reporting that a new animal shelter would be built at a cost of $350,000. The state would chip in $200,000, and the town would add another $50,000.
During the 18 years Mike Cavanaugh worked for him as an assistant and associate head coach at Boston College, the Eagles’ iconic Jerry York came to a few conclusions about the man who helped turn his program into a perennial national champion. “Mike did an incredible job for us. He was a young coach when he came and I gave him a lot of responsibility in terms of on-ice teaching and recruiting,” York said. “And every year, he got better and better at it.
At its essence, the first day of spring practice is an energetic, positive time for a football team, despite what its past may have to say about it. That was the case Monday when Randy Edsall put UConn through its paces on the field at the Shenkman Training Center, and then concluded its two-hour workout with a boisterous chant in its team huddle. If nothing else, the Huskies are already feeling it, anxious for good things to happen for a program in desperate need of it.
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".
