Back in January, we presented our must-attend sports business events for the first half of 2017. While weâ€™re now well into Q4, thereâ€™s still two great opportunities left on the calendar for you to rub shoulders with sports business leaders and industry peers before the buzzer sounds on the year. First stop, La belle province. The John Molson Sports Business Conference is a three-day event featuring over 25 sports industry execs.
As the days get shorter and summer winds down, it’s a great time to add a new book or two to your reading list. Inspired by a post on the Canadian Sports Business Network Facebook group, here’s 3 sports business book recommendations that a) I have a read and b) have a Canadian connection – whether it be the author or the content. Jay just returned to TSN, so what better time to read his first book. In typical Jay fashion, Anchorboy features plenty of laughs and foolishness.
There’s been plenty of buzz about DAZN, a new sports streaming service that’s launching in Canada. DAZN will be the exclusive Canadian home of NFL Game Pass, offering all NFL games for $20 per month (or $150 per year), with no blackouts, even if games are offered on TV. The NFL is the only league on the Canadian menu so far, but DAZN promises more content in the future.
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".
