Barclays Center continues to be a nice stopover while the Islanders await word on a permanent home. Despite past complaints about location, poor ice and attendance, the Islanders are 52-23-13 since moving to Brooklyn to begin the 2015-16 season. “The guys just seem comfortable, they play well there,’’ Doug Weight said Monday. “The strange thing to me even when we’re not on our game — I can’t say it’s the crowd or the atmosphere, whatever it is — you just have a good chance to win.
Hofstra essentially started this men’s basketball season on Aug. 20 and by Sept. 3 the Pride had a 4-0 record as they swept four exhibition games during a late summer trip to Canada. It was a big confidence booster in preparation for the regular season, where Hofstra was picked to finish fourth in the preseason Colonial Athletic Association poll. Justin Wright-Foreman, who had a breakout season last year, averaged 23.3 points on the trip. He said it was a great bonding experience.
Boogie Brozoski is back home and raring to resume her college basketball career. The former Long Island Lutheran High School star transferred to Hofstra from Michigan last winter and is eligible to make her debut Dec. 21 at home against St. Bonaventure. The 5-6 junior point guard could be a game-changer for Hofstra. “I definitely feel like I will bring that here for the team,’’ Brozoski 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".
