Area basketball coaches were working the phones and searching for video shortly after the the Sac-Joaquin Section released the boys and girls basketball playoff brackets on Thursday afternoon. Coaches are looking for any help to scout their playoff opponents. Merced High girls coach Art Solis spent his Thursday morning watching video of the Bears’ first-round opponent Bethel of Vallejo. Merced (21-4) earned the No.
Le Grand High has removed the interim tag from Aaron Martinez, naming the longtime assistant the next Bulldogs head football coach. The move was made official at a school board meeting on Wednesday night. Martinez, 38, took over as the interim head coach after the first game of the season when former coach Raul Alvarez was fired. With low numbers, including just 10 healthy players toward the end of the season opener against Yosemite, the Bulldogs struggled to a 2-8 season.
When is the right time to step away? That’s the question every coach must answer at some point. For longtime Golden Valley football coach Dennis Stubbs, the answer is now. After 25 years as a head football coach, with stops at Le Grand, Golden Valley, Los Banos and Golden Valley again, Stubbs decided it was time to hand over the reigns to the Cougars program to Rick Martinez. For Stubbs, the decision wasn’t easy. Especially, coming off an 0-10 season.
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".
