San Diego State outfielder Chad Bible, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma before baseball season, received some very welcome news this week. Bible’s most recent scan did not show any signs of cancer. “I’m in remission, and I couldn’t be happier,” said Bible, who was informed on Thursday before undergoing his ninth round of chemotherapy.
Coastal Carolina last year became the first team in 60 years to win the national title in its first trip to the College World Series. A sense of familiarity returns to Omaha, Neb., this year. All eight teams have made CWS appearances this decade, with Florida and TCU returning for the third and fourth straight times, respectively. Only LSU (six titles) and Cal State Fullerton (four) and Oregon State (two) have come away with titles, however. CWS history: This is the Titans’ 18th appearance.
It has been three years since Tony Gwynn’s death on June 16, 2014, and I’m still at a loss for words. The Union-Tribune did a series last year called “The 52,” which recognized the most memorable sports moments in San Diego history. This one qualified for all the wrong reasons. Tony’s battle with cancer was well known, but the seriousness of his condition was known to only a very few. His death shocked and saddened not just San Diegans but baseball fans across the country.
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".
