Often times, athletes tend to participate in track and field as a way to stay fit or to help gain speed for their preferred team sport or sports, whatever the season may be. For Old Mill's Breanna Mealer and Northeast's Davon Carroll, the skills they have acquired in their team sports have helped them turn into phenoms on the track, earning them recognition as Capital Gazette Communications outdoor track athletes of the year.
Against reason, America keeps trying to move backwards. There’s a lot to unpack out of Donald Trump’s decision to back out of the Paris Climate Agreement, from the current administration’s continuous removal of America as a world leader and team player to the disappointing influence of climate change deniers in government. Two big takeaways for me were how much this decision was already sadly reflected in Trump (and his cabinet) and how the environment is somehow consistently a partisan issue.
After working your butt off during the intense quarter system that Portland State has, you deserve a break in the summer. It’s completely justified. However, you should definitely consider summer classes. Hear me out. Summer classes are not a bad option. They have their perks. Honest. The first and more obvious perk is that they help you graduate faster. While others take impromptu coast trips, you can cut corners to graduation by taking important classes over the summer.
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".
