A friend once opined that sibling rivalry came into being because Cain was born a Yankees fan and Abel rooted for the Red Sox. Yeah. That’s about how it went over when he said it. Still, rivalries have been with us as long as there have been siblings. It’s how we define ourselves. In Los Angeles (where else), they boil it all down to a bumper sticker: “My two favorite teams are UCLA and whoever is playing USC.”You can replace the schools with Ohio State and Michigan if you want. Or Alabama and Auburn.
If you have a teenager, or even if you once WERE a teenager, you know all about stinky sneakers. In some homes, said stinky sneakers aren’t allowed in the house and are left outside to air out. At least until the neighbors complain. There is even an urban legend that suggests that skunks have relocated out of deference to such offensive footwear. But within the Central Valley School District, the Stinky Sneaker takes on a different meaning.
The Tacoma Dome is on Craig Hanson’s mind. “Seems like we just got started and now the season is almost over,” the longtime East Valley wrestling coach said Tuesday. “The state tournament is right around the corner.”Just over a month away, Feb. 16 and 17, the steep road to state already has started. “I’ve always said we’ve got the best wrestlers in the state in Eastern Washington,” Hanson said. “The problem is that we have to tear each other up to get to state.
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".
