Opinion: Friday night lights went well in Point Loma Point Loma High School principal Hans Becker passed a tip to this writer before last Friday's first-ever use of its new permanent stadium lighting:"They're going to turn the lights on at 6:20," Becker said, stopping for a moment in an electric cart as he scurried about, his two-way radio crackling as he and school personnel worked to cover all details of hosting a capacity crowd for a historical event under the watchful eye of local news...
The bitter memory of a Point Loma High victory in the opening round of last year's CIF playoffs may have motivated El Camino High's performance before a capacity crowd last Friday night under the Pointers' long-awaited stadium lights.The Wildcats used flashes of domination, especially in the passing game, to inflict their own dose of bitterness as they raced, literally, to a 34-12 victory over the Pointers.Last year, the Pointers traveled to Oceanside and came home with a 21-8 defeat by the...
Letter to the Editor: Lighting of Point Loma High’s stadium completely inappropriateScott Hopkins’ story, "Point Loma will be lit for home opener," in the Aug. 17 Peninsula Beacon, makes a great point about PLHS’ campus and the stadium: "...by state law, a new public high school for 2,000 students built today would require a minimum 51 acres of land, or exactly three times the space available to PLHS students.
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".
