Thanksgiving Day high school football used to be an event. Many recall the days when you'd bundle up in layers, throw some coffee or hot cocoa in a travel mug and depart for a local game of interest well in advance of the 10 a.m. kickoff to ensure a decent parking spot -- because the lot would be full 45 minutes before gametime. The rivalries were bitter, and occasionally there was even a playoff spot on the line. Well, those days, unfortunately, are long gone.
LOWELL -- After an offseason in which his primary focus was improving his jump shot, Rinardo Perry finally had the chance to put his hard work to the test on Sunday afternoon. It's safe to say the early returns look very promising for Perry and the UMass Lowell men's basketball team. The sophomore guard poured in a career-high 26 points and drilled 4-of-8 from 3-point land in 32 minutes to help the River Hawks trounce Cornell, 98-78, at the Tsongas Center.
BOSTON -- Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr tried to downplay things with a sarcastic joke. "The fate of the universe rests on the result of tonight's Warriors-Celtics game," said a grinning Kerr to a massive scrum of media members, roughly 90 minutes before his team played the Celtics on Thursday night. This thing was big. Kerr and his team knew it, the Celtics knew it, and, of course, the fans knew it. Mid-November be damned.
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".
