When I heard that Dell Grover passed on just before the new year, I knew I’d miss seeing him at Island Health & Fitness, but I also knew that Dell’s quality of life had declined measurably over the past couple of years and he was not a guy to languish.He would – at 87 years of age – pull into IHF’s parking lot, climb out of his pickup truck (which had a mounted snowplow Dell used often), and take about 15 minutes to make his way from the parking lot to the locker room.
I’m not sure if I am (Ithaca High cross country coach) Rich Bernstein’s Publicity Agent or if Rich is my Content Procurement Agent, but we got it goin’ on…A few weeks ago, I wrote about Silas Defel – who Rich coached to the NYS high school cross country championship, and shortly thereafter, Rich was a part of the National Letter of Intent signing ceremony for five Little Red athletes, about which I wrote.Last week, Rich popped up on my Facebook page, having traveled to Binghamton to watch...
It’s a lot of fun to watch high school teams play at a high level, and when a local team goes deep into the postseason (like last year’s Newfield Trojans, who made it to the State title game), the pride reverberates around the region.
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".
