There was a new face on the ice for the Islanders at Friday’s late-afternoon practice — someone who, at least at one point, figured to be a major part of the organization. Michael Dal Colle, who was the Islanders’ first-round pick in the 2014 draft (fifth overall), was called up on an emergency basis Thursday and will make his NHL debut against the Rangers at Madison Square Garden Saturday afternoon.
Pete Thompson brought so much energy and enthusiasm to Kings Park High School that students felt a void when he retired two years ago. “One of his colleagues told me that, the week after he retired, one of the kids at school came up to him and said ‘this school doesn’t have any life anymore without Mr. Thompson,’ ” Thompson’s brother, Tim said. Pete, who grew up in Kings Park and lived in East Setauket, died of colon cancer Dec. 31. The former Kings Park varsity lacrosse coach was 56.
Massapequa gymnast Gillian Murphy had a ton to smile about. Her team had just notched their highest point total of the season, she’s progressing nicely in her return from a foot injury and the Chiefs are undefeated. But mostly, Murphy was just excited about the garlic knots. “Our coach promised us garlic knots with our pizza [at practice Friday] if we got 165 points,” Murphy said after leading Massapequa to a 166.3-152.2 victory over host Long Beach in a Nassau I gymnastics meet Thursday afternoon.
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".
