Search Tips

Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.


Tony Hawk (born 1968) is one of the most recognized skateboarders in the world. Hawk has probably done more to legitimize the sport than any other boarder before him. He helps fund, through his Tony Hawk Foundation, skateboard parks in underprivileged areas around the country. Hawk is the holder of the record for the first recorded "900" in which a boarder spins 900 degrees in the air and lands back on his or her board, facing the other direction. He holds other boarding records as well.
