Deep into fall practice at the University of Tennessee, there was a chance the recent University High School graduate could start her first game for the Lady Vols, the most storied women’s basketball program in the land, and legendary coach Pat Summitt. “You’ve really jogged the memory. I want to say she had mentioned it,” Bjorklund said from Tarbes, France, where she is in the midst of her second season after a four-year hiatus from competitive basketball.
It was 18 years ago that Jeff Brune dragged me to Iowa for RAGBRAI, an event that ignited a passion for riding a bicycle, opened my life to many wonderful friendships and presented me with new challenges. I’m not sure how that could have happened. That seven-day ride in 1999 is considered one of hardest in the 45 years of the Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa because of it was one of the longest – 531 miles – and hottest – the temperature and humidity were above 90 the first six days.
Of the NCAA-record 3,393 points Jackie Stiles scored in her four-year basketball career at Missouri State, only 73 came in Spokane. Yet that long weekend in the Lilac City remains the highlight of her young life. "Spokane gave me a ton of memories; maybe the best memories of my basketball career," she said.
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".
