For the first time since a trio of big additions were made this offseason, the pre-Spring Training 2018 San Francisco Giants roster was together Friday. And the names of those big additions, Andrew McCutchen and Evan Longoria, were on just about everyone’s lips.
Before Finland declared its independence from Russia on Dec. 6, 1917, for hundreds of years, it was embroiled in a tug-of-war between Sweden and Russia. As if that wasn’t challenging enough, the country suffered a severe famine from 1866 to 1868, motivating high numbers of the population to emigrate to America.
Just north of the Point Cabrillo Lighthouse is a California State Underwater Park — the location of the wrecked 200-ton clipper ship, “Frolic.”What sets this 1850 maritime disaster apart from others along the California coast is that it led to the discovery of the redwood forest. That, of course, led to the creation of mills and towns, and an obvious need to safely guide incoming vessels. Construction of the Cabrillo light station began in 1908, and it was ready for business the following year.
@mccoveychron He also told a story today about playing in the Jr Olympics in Taiwan with Buster—Buster conveniently didn’t have any specific memories...meanwhile Cutch went off about how obsessed all the Taiwanese fans were with 17yo Buster.
@PavlovicNBCS It’s incredible the things people fixate on in the absence of defensible evidence.But I remember you saying in a prev pod that this debate goes on even w/in the org.Are the concerns similar to the rabid anti-Belt fans?Do slumpy shoulders factor in or is it a higher brow convo?
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".
