He surprised them before their game with Miami. The Wright State basketball players were going through warm-ups when Ryan Custer appeared on the edge of the Millett Hall court wearing a green warm-up, WSU shorts, black sneakers and a grin. He would have joined their drills were it not for the wheelchair in which he was being pushed. The Raiders immediately ran over and welcomed him back. Now the team was complete. There was a lot of significance in Tuesday night’s reunion.
In the world of college football — where bruises and bravado often dominate — Ohio State regularly gives one nod to sentimentality after each game when the team gathers in front of the band and sings the cherished alma mater, Carmen Ohio, as the fans chime in. With that in mind, Billy Price — on what had been a historic performance for him Saturday at Ohio Stadium — was asked how he felt about next Saturday when the Buckeyes play Illinois.
It was 1968 and, in the words of Ron Daniels, “Nam was hot.”The American war effort was at its peak in Vietnam and the North Vietnamese People’s Army and the Viet Cong had launched their massive Tet Offensive. A year earlier Daniels had been a senior at Dunbar High School and now he was part of a 561st Transportation Company providing support at Utah Beach, the U.S. Army logistics and supply base on the coast east of Quang Tri, some 12 miles from the DMZ.
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".
