LEOMINSTER -- The St. Bernard's boys' basketball team knew walking out of Leominster High School with a victory would be no easy task. Bernardians head coach Mark Pierce told his team as much prior to the game: Withstand a strong start by a motivated Blue Devils squad and St. B's would have a shot. And though the Bernardians did just that, they certainly didn't make things easy on themselves in the closing minutes.
"Meet the new boss/Same as the old boss." The Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again" (1971)And so it seems that while the song has changed a bit, the tune remains the same in the AFC as the New England Patriots again find themselves vying for a conference title next weekend. Sure, the upstart Jacksonville Jaguars are relative newcomers to this scene, having last reached this point following the 1999 season.
ASHBURNHAM -- It's not the traditional way to get rid of a Christmas tree once the season has come and gone, but in Ashburnham, it certainly seems to be a popular one. Dozens of people braved the cold Sunday afternoon to watch a pyramid of discarded trees go up in flames as the town held its second annual Ashburnham Christmas Tree Bonfire at the Fitchburg Sportsmen's Club. "It doesn't cost much to do this. It's low-impact," Ashburnham Economic Development Commission chairman Bill Johnson said.
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".
