CHARLOTTE — For days and years and decades to come in the town of Catonsville, through the fervent sports region of Maryland and sacred hoops area of Baltimore, they’ll talk about how their team seized college basketball’s dubious role of David who at long last finally conquered Goliath. They’ll talk about how their University of Maryland-Baltimore County Retrievers pieced together the most triumphant and palpable 40 minutes of basketball to accomplish what many deemed unreachable.
Across the nation, tens of thousands of students walked out of their classrooms as part of a mass demonstration calling for stronger gun-control legislation exactly one month after the shooting at Parkland Florida's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. While most of the walkouts in other cities and states were expected to last 17 minutes (to honor the 17 people who died in the Parkland shooting), in the D.C. area, thousands of students gathered at the White House and marched to the U.S. Capitol.
A final record of 27-0 this season changed that, and the Falcons will be placing a banner commemorating their undefeated season in their gym. Before this season, the Poolesville girls basketball team had never won a state championship in program history, let alone a regional title. TOWSON — “I had someone email me last week after we won the region” Poolesville head coach Fred Swick said.
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".
