Marcus Stepney has been innocent since birth, but hasn't felt that way until recently. "My parents would hit me with anything, really," Stepney said. "Fists, objects, knives, anything." He remembers the violence starting when he was four years old. Dealing with it for more than a decade, his decision to fight back cost him consciousness, permanently wiped away whatever trust he had with his mother and father -- if there was any left -- and landed him at the Bell County Juvenile Detention Center.
The Baylor women's soccer team extended its postseason with a win over TCU Sunday, and now they'll know who and when they'll play in the NCAA tournament. Baylor (13-5-2, 4-4-1 Big 12) welcomes in the Rice Owls (12-3-2) in a first-round matchup at Betty Lou Mays Soccer Field Friday at 7 p.m."This whole past weekend at the Big 12 championship, we were joking that it's revenge week, and it's the same thing with Rice," said senior defender Precious Akanyirige.
Lauren Piercy's goal in overtime gave the Baylor Lady Bears a 2-1 win over the TCU Horned Frogs in the Big 12 soccer championship game Sunday afternoon. Piercy slipped past the TCU defense and received a pass from Aline De Lima before powering a shot off Horned Frogs goalkeeper Katie Lund and into the net. Baylor (13-5-2) earns an automatic bid into the NCAA tournament after initially thinking they might win in regulation.
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".
