On March 27, I was scrolling through my Twitter feed and a breaking news headline flashed before my eyes. It was the news that I was dreading and hoping would never come to fruition. The Oakland Raiders officially announced their intent to leave Oakland and relocate to Las Vegas. When this story broke, it instantly made me irate and sad. Fans like myself were justly disappointed and left with little clarity as to exactly why the Raiders were leaving.
Cal rugby captured the CRC 7s Championship in an impressive 19-0 win against Life University with freshman standout Sam Cusano notching the tournament’s MVP honors. “Sam is a quick young kid,” said Cal head coach Jack Clark. “He wants to score tries and he needs to score tries. He’s very determined and we are happy to have him on our team. He’s a good player.”Cal kicked off its weekend with a clean sweep of Clemson, Penn State and Delaware on Saturday.
This weekend, Cal turns the page to its final chapter of the rugby season and will take part in the Penn Mutual CRC 7s in Philadelphia at Talen Energy Stadium. In rugby 7s, Cal shifts back to the olympic style of play that features a faster pace, more space and a roster that is catered to these central differences from the traditional rugby 15s. The Bears’ roster at this weekend’s CRC 7s will include a blend of the team’s experienced upperclassmen and emerging underclassmen.
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".
