You’ve got to be kidding me. That was my initial reaction, edited for decency, after learning Fresno State has scrapped its much-publicized plans to modernize and update Bulldog Stadium. Bulldogs fans should be even more miffed. Fresno State administrators will undoubtedly disagree with that characterization. When they get around to massaging the message, they’ll tell us stadium renovations have merely been put off. Don’t let them pull the wool Bulldogs cap over your eyes.
The first thing that’s noticeable about Jalen Green is his long, lithe body. Spindly arms and slender shoulders that have never lifted a barbell. A thin torso supported by long, skinny legs made to look even skinnier by Green’s choice of tight-fitting shorts that barely extend to mid thigh. “Those skinny legs jump, though,” smirks Demetrius Porter, the former Fresno State point guard as he and I sat behind the basket in the Memorial High gym before a recent game.
The Fresno Grizzlies will have a new manager this season. In 2019, they may have a new major-league affiliate. Rodney Linares, seen as a rising star in the Houston Astros organization, will assume the Grizzlies’ managerial reins after spending the last three seasons leading Double-A Corpus Christi, a source with knowledge of the situation said. A formal announcement is expected later this week.
Personally, I think Giants should be in rebuild mode. Dodgers, Rockies, even D-backs all have better, younger rosters. But if "win now" is the goal, McCutchen, Longoria are solid additions. Didn't give up a ton, stayed under luxury tax and kept draft picks.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
