One chapter ends and another begins in the storybook career of Steven M. Cook, CGCS, MG. Cook confirmed for Golfdom today that he has resigned his position as director of agronomy at Oakland Hills CC, Bloomfield Hills, Mich., and accepted the same position at Medinah (Ill.) CC. Cook had just completed his 20th year working at Oakland Hills, where he hosted a Ryder Cup, a PGA Championship and two U.S. Amateurs in his time at the club. He said it was tough leaving Oakland Hills, but Illinois is home.
I love cars. Whenever I get a chance, I like to sneak a little Car and Driver-like content into this magazine. Name one turf magazine that has had a classic car on its cover. Yep, in 2014 we put a superintendent (Mike Combs, CGCS) and his 1970 Camaro on the cover. I snuck my 2002 Z28 Camaro (which I sold a few years ago) into the magazine a few times (most recently last month).
U.S. battlefield successes against the Islamic State have paradoxically created an urgent situation: deciding the fate of hundreds of captured foreign fighters in Syria. During the liberation of cities like Raqqa, local groups like the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) seized foreign fighters, who are now languishing in temporary detention facilities in Syria.
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".
