As a kid, oh about 50 years ago, I remember being the first one to the door in Portland and grabbing the Sports section of The Courant. Then, close to 30 years ago, in 1990, I lived the kid's dream, becoming sports editor here. Now as I slide into semi-retirement and leave the job Friday, I will continue to be at the door, just not moving as quickly. It has been a whole lot of fun trying to give readers our best online and in print.
Randy Edsall was the highest-paid state employee in Maryland in 2016. A salary database of state employees showed that Edsall made $2.67 million, according to the Baltimore Sun. Edsall was fired as Maryland football coach in the middle of the 2015 season. The price of doing business in big-time college football. Edsall, of course, is back as the UConn football coach. His five-year contract guarantees a salary of $1 million, plus performance incentives, but is far less than what he made at Maryland.
Jerry Weinstein, who has been in the Colorado Rockies' organization for 10 seasons, has been named manager of the Yard Goats. He replaces Darin Everson, who led the Yard Goats to a 74-67 record last year in the Eastern League when the team was forced to play all its games on the road.
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".
