The UC Santa Cruz athletics department has been through more spin cycles than the basketball team’s gym socks over the past year. So, prior to the start of the 2017-18 school year, administrators went looking for a stabilizing force. They believe they’ve found it in interim athletic director Greg Warzecka.
Just a half a point more, and perhaps it could have been Nic Lamb hoisting the champion’s trophy for Monday’s Big Wave Puerto Escondido Challenge in Mexico. Instead, Hawaii’s Kai Lenny — who nipped the Santa Cruz native Lamb by half a point for the last spot out of the second semifinal — was the one whom friends hoisted onto their shoulders after the final horn blared. With a score of 23.53 out of 30, Lenny beat out Jamie Mitchell (18.64) of Australia and Tom Lowe (12.23) of Great Britain.
While soaking her trail-weary bones in a mineral bath in Ashland, Ore., Savannah Fitz reflected on the fork in the road. Since the Soquel native set out in mid-April to hike the entirety of the Pacific Crest Trail, she’s had to navigate several splits in her path. One fork, however, more proverbial than literal, stands out among them, especially in light of Wednesday’s news that the body of a PCT hiker from Japan had been found in the Kings River in Kings Canyon National Park.
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".
