When Selection Sunday rolled around, Raykena Brown was not worried in the least. The Kean University field hockey team was waiting to hear if it had earned the first bid to the NCAA Division III Tournament in school history on Nov. 5. For Brown, a senior forward, it was the last opportunity of her career. Yet somehow, she knew all along the Cougars were headed to the NCAAs. "We had a great season so of course we thought, 'Why wouldn't we get in?'"
PHILADELPHIA -- About a week before his 26th birthday back in 1977, Ron Jaworski was surprised to find out he was heading from one coast to the other when the Philadelphia Eagles acquired the quarterback in a trade with the Los Angeles Rams. With his focus on becoming the starting QB for the Eagles, Jaworski trusted his wife Liz with finding a house in their new city. Thus began a bond with South Jersey that continues to this day, almost 30 years after his retirement from football.
For someone like Marc Ambrosia who is constantly thinking about music, the inspiration for a song can strike at any time. He doesn't even have to be awake. Such was the case for his latest original song, "Let Me Be Your Secret," which is literally a dream come true. It is the first of 11 new tracks that the 22-year-old singer/songwriter, a Clayton resident, is releasing one by one over the next year.
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".
