Mike Holt had the best seat on the bay for the final sailing races of the 505 World Championship, held last week in the Chesapeake Bay near Annapolis, Maryland. While all the other competitors fretted over frequent changes in wind direction and velocity, the Santa Cruz skipper could relax and enjoy the cool breeze blowing through his hair as he watched all of Friday’s action from his perch in a motorized boat. It’s good to be the champion.
The World Surf League plans to put on a big wave surf contest at Maverick’s for both men and women, local and world famous, as early as this season. Whether that will happen is still up in the air. The final loop in the sale of a five-year contest permit from Cartel Management, Inc., to the WSL as part of a bankruptcy proceeding was expected to be closed late Wednesday night at a meeting of the San Mateo Harbor District commissioners.
The World Surf League can purchase Titans of Mavericks assets, including a five-year permit essential to organizing a big wave surf contest at the Maverick’s surf break, a bankruptcy judge ruled Friday. United States Bankruptcy Judge Deborah Saltzman ruled that Cartel Management, Inc., which owns Titans of Mavericks LLC, could go ahead with the sale of Titans assets for $525,000 to help assuage some of the debt that caused the two entities to jointly file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in February.
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".
