The smiles couldn’t be wiped from the faces of East Meadow’s Myla McLeod and Scarlett Espinosa after their first varsity soccer game. The freshmen duo and best friends don’t need to do much talking between the lines. And their chemistry off the field didn’t take long to equate on a varsity pitch, as Espinosa found McLeod on a cross with 33 minutes remaining in host East Meadow’s 1-0 victory over Manhasset in its non-league girls soccer season-opening game Monday morning.
Long Island swimmers will be sharing a pool this weekend with United States Olympian Ryan Lochte, and even some of them can't believe it. "It's kind of crazy," said Jason Louser, who enters his junior year at Shoreham-Wading River High School this fall. "I've always wanted to go to a meet to just watch him swim, not being involved in the meet, but this time I am in the swim meet swimming with Ryan Lochte. It's mind blowing."
After delivering the walk-off home run Thursday, Brett Gardner came to the plate with the bases loaded and nobody out in the ninth inning Saturday. As chants of “Let’s Go Yankees!” poured from the crowd, Gardner smacked a single up the middle for the walk-off single off lefthandeder Dan Jennings as the Yankees beat the Rays, 5-4, in front of 43,015 at the Stadium in 3 hours, 22 minutes. Chase Headley started off the ninth inning with a walk and pinch-runner Jacoby Ellsbury stole second.
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".
