Needing just two points to clinch its 16th Hockey East regular season title, Boston College men’s hockey will host Maine in a two-game weekend series to wrap up the regular season. The Eagles (16-13-3, 16-6-0 Hockey East) shut out the Black Bears (16-12-4, 10-9-3) on their home ice for the first time in over 18 years last week and have taken five straight against them. The game will be aired on ESPN3, and available to stream on WatchESPN.
Think again before setting out poison for the neighborhood rat population, as a new study published by the Ventura County Public Works Agency shows that owls and hawks can be more effective in controlling rodent damage. The Agency presented data collected from its Raptor Study for Levee Protection using hawks and owls to control the rodent population.
With its win against Maine Saturday night, Boston College men’s hockey clinched its 16th-consecutive season with a winning record, a streak that dates back to 2001-02. The Eagles may be well on their way to another Hockey East championship, but it sure doesn’t feel like it. BC has failed to exceed expectations this season by any measure. Ranked No. 13 by USCHO at the start of the season, the Eagles now sit at No. 19 in the nation.
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".
