Boise State University has brought back a fan favorite from the early 1990s: the football tee-retrieving dog. Bronco fans may remember Kicks, the black Lab who retrieved the tee after kickoff at home games for four seasons. Kids have been fetching the small rubber football holder from the field since Kicks retired in 1998. This year, Zamzows approached the university about sponsoring a new dog to retrieve the tees. BSU officials were all for it, as they were hoping to reinstitute the practice.
A traffic stop southeast of Boise on Sunday morning turned out to be anything but routine. Law enforcement officials recovered a vehicle, wallet, credit cards and cellphone of an Illinois man who has been missing since late August, according to court documents. They also found a sheet in the car that appears to have blood on it. The man driving the vehicle — a 2000 green minivan — is a Texas fugitive who is wanted on a warrant for alleged theft.
Nick Symmonds takes his fans on a sentimental journey of Boise in a video he posted on his Facebook page. “When I roll into Boise, just the smell of the sagebrush and the river, reminds me of my childhood,” the 33-year-old track champion says in a loving tribute to his hometown. “The old trails, the trails I learned to run on, it all brings back a lot of memories.” The video opens with footage of Symmonds running on trails in the Foothills at dawn.
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".
