It was around 11:30 a.m. on Oct. 14 and Phil Cuzzi couldn't help but stare at his cell phone, which was sitting on a table in his Nutley home. Cuzzi knew that the ultimate phone call in his profession could be coming his way. And since he's a Major League Baseball umpire, a call from the legendary Joe Torre would be something special. "We all knew that the (umpiring) assignments (for the World Series) would probably be coming out on Oct. 14," Cuzzi recalled Sunday afternoon by telephone.
Heading into his team's game at Weequahic on Oct. 13, Glen Ridge football coach Duke Mendez knew his squad would have its hands full against a talented team. And in the end, Weequahic did prevail, 42-8, at Untermann Field in Newark, but the Ridgers gave a good account of themselves and hope to carry that momentum into some big games down the stretch. Glen Ridge will take a 4-2 record into a game at Shabazz High on Oct. 20 at 7 p.m. Shabazz improved to 6-0 last Friday by defeating Hoboken.
Heading into a huge game, the Wayne Hills football team took care of business last Friday night, downing Millburn, 42-8, on the road. The Patriots will take a 4-2 record into what should be a high-intensity game at Passaic Valley in Little Falls on Oct. 21. Kickoff time is 1 p.m. (See more on this game in a related article). Wayne Hills was favored against Millburn on Oct. 13, and took control quickly with a big 21-point, first-quarter charge.
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".
