Ten-year-old Carson Harmer had the rare opportunity to participate in a North American elite hockey tournament earlier this month. Not bad for a kid from rural southwestern Ontario. Harmer was one of 17 players on the Pro Hockey Toronto Brick team made up of players born in 2007, the majority of which were from the Greater Toronto Area.
There’s no expansion or player entry draft to take up the headlines in June like the National Hockey League (NHL), but work continues behind the scenes in getting the 2017-18 version of the Mitchell Hawks on the ice. Competing in the Pollock Division of the Provincial Junior Hockey League (PJHL), the Hawks will have a new look this September as new coaches have been brought in.
Bob Ellison is going out on top. His 33-year teaching career ended once June did, some would say rather abruptly, but the timing was right. And if anyone who knows Ellison will tell you, he goes with what his heart tells him. The department head of physical education at Mitchell District High School (MDHS), Ellison was back as a Blue Devil for his third stint, having originally left in 1997, was vice-principal for one semester in 2007 and returned in 2014.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
