Irwin Simon is founderand chief executive office of Hain Celestial Group, a company specializing mostly in organic foods and with sales reaching above $4 billion annually. But on Saturday night at Mile One Centre in St. John’s, it was tales of a different kind of product that were attracting his attention.
The St. John’s Edge begin their busiest stretch of the National Basketball League of Canada season Tuesday night as they open a five-game road swing to be played over six days in southern Ontario. But it looks like they could do so without leading scorer Carl English, who is dealing with a fractured nose and a possible concussion. The Edge star guard did not play Saturday night as the Edge downed the KW (Kitchener Waterloo) Titans 109-99 at Mile One Centre.
The KW Titans sit in last place in the National Basketball League of Canada, but for whatever reason, the Kitchener, Ont.-based team has given the St. John’s Edge more trouble than any other opponent through the first half of the 2017-18 season. The Titans are just 3-11 on the campaign, but two of their wins have come over the Edge, including a 94-86 decision in a daytime game Tuesday in Kitchener. No other team has beaten St. John’s (11-6) twice this season.
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".
