Syracuse, N.Y. -- John Wildhack declined to provide a timetable for the much-discussed renovation plans for the Carrier Dome, but the Syracuse athletic director was emphatic about one thing. In a brief telephone interview on Thursday, Wildhack said one of his main priorities is to avoid losing a home football season when the Dome eventually undergoes its long-overdue renovation. "It's imperative that we don't lose any home season,'' Wildhack said.
Syracuse, N.Y. -- Jannie Washington, the mother of Syracuse University basketball great Pearl Washington, passed away on Sunday due to heart and lung complications. She was 88 years old. Jannie Washington had been admitted to Jamaica Hospital in Queens a little over a week ago. She had appeared to be improving, but suffered setbacks on Saturday. "She was young at heart and full of life,'' Debra Busacco, Pearl's fiancee, said Wednesday night. "Her whole family was with her at the hospital.''
Syracuse, N.Y. -- Although Slovakia's team struggled during Pool play in the FIBA Under-20 European Championships this week in Romania, Syracuse University commit Marek Dolezaj has stood out. Dolezaj, a 6-foot-9 forward, will be a freshman at Syracuse this fall, but before coming to Syracuse, he is playing for his country's national team in the U-20 European Championships. Slovakia is currently 1-3 after wrapping up Pool play with an 86-68 loss to Russia on Wednesday.
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".
