I was disappointed to receive the email from WSU President Kirk Schulz and Provost Dan Bernardo regarding the Sept. 29 football game against University of Southern California. Many in my department found the message quite disheartening. One can hardly imagine a clearer statement that — for at least this one day — football takes priority over the lives of faculty and students and the education and research that supposedly lie at the core of this university’s mission.

The Owls took care of business over the weekend, defeating Stetson and FGCU on the road and clinched the top seed for the ASUN tournament The wins also made the Owls ASUN regular season champions for the second straight year. Against Stetson, the Owls’ defense was relentless all night, holding the Hatters to a negative hitting percentage.
Needless to say, things have gone south for the Clippers since their 4-0 start. The losses have been piling up of late, thanks in no small part to (surprise, surprise!) a rash of injuries to key players. Danilo Gallinari has a hip problem, Patrick Beverley is battling a sore right knee and Austin Rivers is playing on a bum ankle. Obviously, Milos Teodosic is still sidelined with his foot issue. As a result, the Clips have been super thin on the wing and in the backcourt.
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".
