River Oaks Golf Club in Nicolaus, given up for dead after being severely flood damaged and closed four months ago, has been resuscitated. In an era when even the healthiest courses struggle, such a turnaround borders on miraculous. “We thought it could be a new little venture we could have,” said Nick Podesta, who will serve as River Oaks’ general manager in ownership partnering with his parents, Carlos and Heather.
If you make a hole a one at Castle Oaks, you’re given a form to fill out with the details that the course faxes to the newspaper. After asking for your name and the date, the third question on the form: Is this your first hole in one? For the first 77 years, four months and six days of Joe Fanelli’s life, the answer would have been: Yes. One day later, however, the answer was: No.
Kevin Krigger was riding high in 2013. Coming off his two most lucrative seasons in his 13th year as a jockey, he had worked his way into being a go-to guy for Southern California powerhouse trainer Doug O’Neill. He had the mount on a legitimate Kentucky Derby contender in Goldencents, who was 8-1 to make Krigger the first African-American jockey to win the Run for the Roses in 111 years. He was 29, at the top of his game. He and Goldencents finished 17th in the Derby. Then fifth in the Preakness.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
