SANTA FE SPRINGS — St. Paul High girls volleyball coach John Van Deventer had one simple question for his team going into its CIF Southern California Regional Division 3 semifinal match against visiting Poway. Why not us? For senior middle blocker Hannah Tostado, who recorded a match-high 17 kills and 13 blocks for St. Paul (29-10), Van Deventer’s question was all the Swordsmen needed to get fired up to take on the Titans (23-14).
Standup comedian George Lopez has been a Raiders fans since he was 11 years old. On Sunday, he’ll receive one of the highest honors any fan can ask for in lighting the Al Davis torch when Oakland squares off against the Patriots at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City at 1:25 p.m. PT. “George has the Hispanic market,” Raiders owner Mark Daivs said, per ESPN’s Paul Gutierrez. “He’s still a hero to kids and families. He’s consistently been there as a Raider fan.
Patriots defensive back Devin McCourty says his game will have to be locked in when he squares off against (what he perceives to be) a high-octane Raiders offense Sunday. And he feels that way because of who is throwing the passes for Oakland. “I think for us, the thing is he’s [Raiders QB Derek Carr] always aware what they want to do,” McCourty said during a conference call Thursday.
Back in August, I wrote about how some fintech companies were doing a better job than banks of providing impactful mobile experiences. I mentioned Acorns. Funny how they'll now provide that experience for PayPal. https://t.co/EDZ6aQak1u
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".
