Kyren Wilson said he was "devastated" to taste defeat in his first appearance in a final at a Triple Crown event. The 26-year-old from Kettering lost 10-7 to Mark Allen in a gripping Masters final at Alexandra Palace on Sunday. Wilson fought back the tears during the presentation ceremony, but later said he was thrilled with his displays in only his second Masters appearance. "I have to put it into perspective - reaching the final is a great achievement," said the world number 14.
World number 14 Kyren Wilson says he is far from satisfied with just reaching the semi-finals of the Masters. The 26-year-old is only playing at the prestigious event at London's Alexandra Palace for the second time. But impressive wins over Barry Hawkins and two-time Masters champion Mark Williams have seen the Kettering cueman set up a last-four meeting with world number three Judd Trump on Saturday. "I am not just going be happy to reach the semi-finals or the finals of big events."
Earlier this week we reported on the decline in teachers entering the profession. And the responses from social media poured in. From Facebook From Twitter @npratc @npr_ed as a student hoping to make a career in education, really hoping this trend doesn't continue— Jon García (@garcijon000) March 5, 2015 From Instagram Now, what about the other side: Why do teachers stay in the profession?

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".
