LAKE PLACID - The Lake Placid cross country team continued its winning ways Tuesday, besting several local schools in a four-way dual meet at the Mount Van Hoevenberg biathlon course. With the sun blazing down, the Blue Bombers went one-two-three in the boys' race, while the girls claimed the two-three-four spots in the meet, which included AuSable Valley, EKMW and Beekmantown. Scott Schulz placed first for the boys on a slightly modified course, completing it in 17 minutes, 17 seconds.
PAUL SMITHS — A missing hiker who was rescued early Monday morning was unprepared to spend a night in the woods — much less two — but he may have saved himself by building a makeshift shelter to stay dry during Sunday’s cold, wet weather. Richard Guinan, a 40-year-old soldier stationed at Fort Drum, climbed St. Regis Mountain Saturday morning and successfully made the summit before heading back down the trail.
LAKE PLACID - There was a late fall glimmer to the grass early Sunday morning as about 50 mountain bikers pedaled around warming up at the biathlon course at Mount Van Hoevenberg. The racers lined up in a field with bikes spread out before them on the ground, seemingly haphazard but all pointing toward the start line. The racers took off, racing mostly themselves. Over the course of 20, 40 or 80 kilometers, the bike riders would be spreading out and spending more time alone than in a pack.
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".
