Vallejo High senior George Binda is a busy and hard-working man. He might be the James Brown of local prep sports. This season the 18-year-old has the Redhawks “feeling good” by playing two sports in the winter — soccer and what he calls his hobby — basketball. Sometimes he will compete in practices for both teams in one day. Last week he had one soccer game and three basketball games. Throw in time for school and homework and he doesn’t get a whole lot of sleep.
For the first time this season, St. Patrick-St. Vincent High head boys basketball coach Derek Walker had all the pieces to his puzzle. He had to love the image staring back at him. For reasons such as injuries or the school’s football team playing late into December, Walker’s roster for the Bruins had not been complete this season until Saturday night. In a nonleague game at home against Vallejo, that roster shined early and often in a 80-53 win.
The St. Patrick-St. Vincent High girls basketball team defeated Vallejo at home in a nonleague city rivarly game on Saturday, 64-18. The Bruins (10-7) were led by Tameiya Sadler, who had 13 points and five rebounds. Ashmeen Sran had 13 points, while Olivia Bacal Walker had nine points, while Kalie Coversion had 10 points and six rebounds. “I liked our passing today,” St. Pat’s head coach Nadine Walker said. “We passed the ball well in transistion.
If you want to read a good book dealing with MLK, may I suggest "The Children" by the late great David Halberstam. Don't let the length of the book (around 700 pages) push you away. It's powerful, important, well-researched, well written. Also, have a tissue. It's sad.
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".
