Tracing the PGA Tour events of North Vancouver golf legend Bryn Parry reveals an interesting story of highs and lows, of aces and heartaches, of life itself even. The Deep Cove resident will play in this week’s Canadian Open at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ont., the fourth time he’s teed it up at a PGA Tour event.
When I was a youngster my parents didn’t sign me up for baseball because they believed it to be, and pardon my use of technical sports lingo, very, very boring. My mind flashed back to that decision last weekend as I watched my baseball-mad six-year-old play an inning with his summer-league team. I’m using the word “play” here in a very loose sense, as the ratio of “standing around” to “playing baseball” was approximately 47,000:1.
The good news for the North Shore Twins is that they won their opening round playoff series 2-0 against the Okanagan Athletics over the weekend to earn their spot in the B.C. Premier Baseball League championship tournament. The even better news is that two pitchers who have been wild cards this season, missing for much of the year, turned into the aces the Twins were looking for just as the team is heading into its biggest weekend of the year.
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".
