A youth basketball program organizer said retired player Vincent Askew’s 2008 arrest in Florida has no bearing on his ability to serve as an instructor during a holiday camp in Guam this week. Jr. NBA Guam program organizer Elsa Ulloa said Askew has explained the incident, and she is satisfied with his answer. In August 2008, Askew was arrested and accused of having sex with a 16-year-old girl in a Miami-Dade hotel room, according to a report from the Associated Press.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un doesn’t want war, nor does he want to bomb Guam, said former NBA superstar Dennis Rodman. The former NBA superstar said he would lay down his life for world peace. Rodman, who is on Guam until Saturday, said his trip here was more about curiosity and it was not politically motivated. He wasn’t getting paid to come to Guam, he said, and in the few hours he spent here before meeting with the media at 10 a.m. Thursday, Rodman summed up Guam as:“Paradise,” he said.
ASHGABAT, Turkenistan -- Personal bests. That's what Guam swimmers came away with after their first races at the 5th Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games.

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".
