As clocks ticked past 9 p.m. Thursday night, Ruby Martin sat looking at Twitter in her small Coralville bedroom, which felt even smaller with family crowded around her. They needed to find the right words for Martin’s commitment to Arizona State. In the end, simplicity won the day: "I’m proud to announce my verbal commitment to swim at Arizona State University! " the tweet read.
No matter the opponent, no matter the game, no matter the setting, there was a constant theme at Iowa City West practice during non-district play:This Friday is just another step toward the games that count. The mentality started with stoic head coach Garrett Hartwig and trickled down to his players. Make no mistake: The Trojans wanted to pull a 4-0 sweep through their non-district opponents, which they did. But everything they did through those first four weeks was in preparation. For Week 5.
IOWA CITY, Ia. — Entering fall, the Hawkeyes already had a laundry list of competition for 2019 in-state prospect D.J. Carton, a cerebral lefty point guard from Bettendorf. Carton told HawkCentral he doesn't plan to commit to a school until next summer. Put that together with his recent surge up the recruiting rankings to as high as No. 37 in Scout.com's 2019 database, and one thing becomes clear ...
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".
