When you walk on to the grounds of Fort Erie Race Track these days, you can almost see the ghosts. It’s a large, cavernous complex, but much of it is either relatively empty or closed off completely to the public. It’s obviously a place that has seen better, happier days, starting with Opening Day back in 1897. But no one can figure out how to restore the area to past glories. In fact, a chat with fellow visitors on a recent sunny fall Tuesday afternoon often focused on the past.
The Buffalo Bandits hope Josh Byrne will be the cornerstone of their rebuilding efforts as they prepare for the 2018 season. The Bandits took Byrne with the first overall pick in the National Lacrosse League draft on Monday. The session was staged outside of Toronto at the Toronto Rock’s practice facility. Byrne was one of four picks added to the team in the first two rounds of the draft as the team rebuilds its roster.
You knew something good would come out of the terrible season of the Buffalo Bandits earlier this year. Monday is the day it happens. The draft will take place outside of Toronto, starting at 7 p.m. (nlltv.com)The Bandits staggered to the worst record in the National Lacrosse League last season at 6-12. The only other time that Buffalo has gone first in the draft was in 2004, when it took Delby Powless in the first round.
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".
