Less than 24 hours after claiming its first GNAC Championship since 2012, the Central Washington University football team packed the Wellington Event Center Sunday afternoon and waited to see its playoff fate. The No. 7 Wildcats, who finished the regular season 11-0 overall and 8-0 in GNAC play, were hoping for home field advantage in the first round of the playoffs. When they heard their name called, they received so much more than they anticipated.
A marching band is usually made up of brass and woodwind instruments, playing along to the beat of a drum line. There are trumpets, sousaphones, saxophones, snare drums and bass drums. But over the last three years, Central Washington University’s music department has taken a more modern approach. Electronic keyboards, guitars, basses, microphones for vocalists and amplifiers line the sideline at Tomlinson Stadium to accompany the band.
With more than 20,000 acres still burning in the Jolly Mountain Fire, the area’s poor air quality has started to hinder many athletic programs in Kittitas County. On Monday, local athletic departments began taking precautions and establishing protocols for the schedules of practices and games this week. Ellensburg, Kittitas and Cle Elum-Roslyn high schools and Central Washington University have started searching for other options to maintain regularity for its student athletes.
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".
