Ryse Williams, a basketball standout at Redondo High School, passed away from a rare form of cancer just one day before graduation. Williams, who died Thursday, was #0 and he was Bay Leagues 2017 Most Valuable Player. He averaged 20 points and 5 rebounds a game and was headed to Loyola Marymount in the fall. But he succumbed to a rare aggressive form of cancer that didn't respond well to chemotherapy. He was hospitalized a little more than a week ago.
- He just may be the happiest man at the Happiest Place on Earth. Fox 11 was there as Reitz walked through the turnstiles Thursday morning marking the feat that's an unofficial record at the Anaheim park. The Air Force veteran says the feat will probably land him a Guinness World Record, something that wasn't originally the plan. Reitz got an annual pass as a gift when he was unemployed. He used in every single day in 2012. Now, he's fully employed, but still visits the park every single day.
- In 2002, Micah Peasley gave a memorable interview on FOX 11 that went viral way before going viral was even a thing. FOX 11 sent a reporter down to Orange County that day to do a story about the weather and big waves, and the rest was history. His interview, commonly headlined "get pitted," "so pitted," or "funny surfer dude" on YouTube, has since been viewed millions upon millions of times. And like any true viral video, his words have been remixed into songs.
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".
