Any fan of the Southern California lifestyle knows Manhattan Beach has it all: surf, sun and sand. The weekend added something else to the mix — world-class beach volleyball. The 58th AVP Manhattan Beach Open wrapped up Sunday afternoon, with Emily Day and Brittany Hochevar beating Nicole Branagh and Brandie Wilkerson 21-18, 21-18 to defend their women’s title. Phil Dalhausser and Nick Lucena won the men’s title with a 23-25, 21-18, 15-10 victory over Trevor Crabb and Seth Rosenthal.
For basketball, New York City is unquestioned as the mecca of the game. The 58th annual Manhattan Beach Open, the longest continually running tournament in beach volleyball, begins Thursday, bringing 64 of the most talented teams in the sport to the local sand for what is known as the “Granddaddy” of the sport.
In just six seasons, Los Angeles Sparks star Nneka Ogwumike has already amassed a career’s worth of WNBA accomplishments. In the last year alone, she won a most valuable player award and drained a championship-clinching shot in the league Finals.
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".
