If it weren't for sports, Simone Askew might not have made it to West Point. It was while watching the midshipmen from the Naval Academy and the corps of cadets from the United States Military Academy march onto the field at Army vs. Navy football games that Askew entertained the "artificial attraction," as she said, to attend a service academy. She has come a long way from the kid in the stands at football games wondering how she could make it onto the field.
It did not exactly feel like Rose Namajunas' night before she walked into the Octagon. Nothing was really going right for her this week. Her flight from Denver was delayed; she struggled to sleep well because of the New York noise; Joanna Jedrzejczyk, her opponent and the five-time defending strawweight champion, wouldn't stay out of her face. To top it off, she walked out to the wrong song.Namajunas, however, bet on herself, even if no one else would.
Joanna Jedrzejczyk climbs off her bike and wheels it through the doors of American Top Team (ATT), a mixed martial arts gym in Coconut Creek, Florida. She rides the four miles between her house and the gym more mornings than not. With her dark hair pulled up in a high ponytail that sits to the left side of her head, and fingernails blazed pink, she doesn't necessarily look like the dominant fighter she's known to be.
In tonight's post-game press conference, Auriemma said that Samuelson suffered a mid-foot sprain when she left the game mid-way through the second quarter. No prognosis as of yet. She will undergo further evaluation in the coming days.
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".
