BALTIMORE — Thanks to some late heroics from Casper Ware, Team Challenge ALS outlasted Ohio State’s Scarlett and Gray, 88-83, in double overtime in the semifinals of The Basketball Tournament at Coppin State Tuesday night. The victory leaves the group of former college stars one step away from The Tournament’s winner-take-all grand prize of $2 million. They’ll face two-time defending champion Overseas Elite here on Thursday night.
My alma mater was on ESPN again this week. Maybe that’s not weird. A lot of Division I schools were on ESPN this week, just like every week. But I went to Binghamton University and Binghamton University only gets on ESPN for one of two reasons: because of Tony Kornheiser or because something really bad just happened. This time it was the latter, specifically, that an international criminal who played for Binghamton’s basketball team was released early from Serbian prison.
ALLENTOWN, Pa. — One of the first rules taught to young writers is “Show, don’t tell.”Turns out it’s a pretty good rule for young baseball players, too. Gary Sanchez told reporters gathered before his first rehab game Tuesday at Coca-Cola Park that his right biceps is healthy. In case there was any doubt, he then showed everyone just how healthy he was.
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".
