Seasons are the perfect reset button. Moods and feelings get to begin again as the weather shifts its focus. Seasons signal the end of one thing and the beginning of another. Fall is the beginning of school. It’s when memories take us back to getting a new pair of shoes or pants or the return to campus. Memories creep into focus with the smell of rotting leaves. But beer has ruined seasons like cable news has ruined news.
University of Connecticut coach Ray Reid has seen his fair share of accomplished goalkeepers. In his 25 years as a head coach with both UConn and the University of Southern Connecticut, Reid has had a total of nine stalwart starting goalkeepers. None, however, were ever as good as Andre Blake, the Huskies All-American junior goalkeeper. Reid believes Blake is destined for big things after he finishes his college career, when he eventually makes the move to Major League Soccer.
Bend, Oregon, doesn’t have Uber yet. Maybe they never will. They don’t have Lyft, either. That means visitors get around the city by calling (calling!) local cab companies with names like Coiled Cab, GreenCab, and X Cab. You could always walk, too -- the whole city is only 33-square miles, almost exactly the size of Manhattan.
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".
