New Castle County should aspire to be a regional and national destination for business. Unfortunately, there has been a persistent criticism by some people that our county government has not done enough in the past to cultivate and incentivize new and existing business opportunities.
A veteran fighter like Manny Pacquiao should know better. So should his trainer Freddie Roach. Never let a match go to the score cards if you can help it. In the first Pacquiao-Tim Bradley fight, Bradley prevailed in what was considered by most boxing fans and media members a controversial decision (115-113, 115-113, 113-115).
How quickly things can change in sports. In February, Amir Khan made disparaging remarks about Floyd Mayweather Jr. because the undefeated welterweight decided to fight Marcos Maidana. "I felt very disrespected by his team," Khan tweeted last month about his negotiations with Mayweather. "I wasted my time."
Junior middleweight prospect Patrick Day emerged victorious again, scoring a first-round knockout over Duane King in a scheduled six-round bout Friday night on Lou DiBella's latest Broadway Boxing card at the Aviator Sports and Events Center in Brooklyn. The Freeport native improved to 7-0-1 (4 KOs) after dropping King with a left hook 39 seconds into the bout.
What goes around comes around is probably the statement of the week. We'll start with Ohio State, which hardly ever plays any of its in-state rivals (Dayton, Xavier, Cincinnati). The NCAA Tournament selection committee changed that temporarily as the No. 6 Buckeyes squared off against 11th-seeded Dayton in a second-round game on Saturday.
The coaching carousel is in full swing as 22 coaches were either fired or stepped down. Three schools have already filled positions, with Bruce Pearl the latest, replacing Tony Barbee at Auburn. Russ Pennell took over for Clarence Finley at Central Arkansas and former Bobcats coach Mike Dunlap replaced Max Good at Loyola Marymount.
Best player: The ascension of Odyssey Sims, the BIG 12 Player of the Year, has been astounding. The senior guard and future WNBA lottery pick improved her scoring from 12.9 to 28.4 points per game this season. She's been an adept distributor (4.5 assists) and rebounder (4.5 rebounds) as she has carried the Bears most of this season.
For the St. John's women, it will be the fifth consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance and the second straight for coach Joe Tartamella. Fordham will be in the dance for the first time since 1994, while Marist will be a part of the post season for the ninth straight year.
The hit came hard and early for VCU in an Atlantic 10 semifinal matchup against George Washington on Saturday at Barclays Center. Sophomore guard Melvin Johnson, the A-10's sixth man of the year and the Rams' third-leading scorer, had to be helped off the court after suffering a left leg injury just 5:29 into the contest and his team trailing by three points.
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 politicians Barack Obama and Mitt Romney 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
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.
