Toronto FC was just founded when Tosaint Ricketts began his collegiate soccer career in 2005 at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. He's been a fan since its inception — following them across the pond during his playing days in Europe — and the thought of continuing his career at home was always on the back of Ricketts' mind. After seven years of ups and downs — including stops in Finland, Norway, Romania, Turkey, and Israel — the 30-year-old decided it was time to return.
Early November is the off-season for most pro female tennis players. But for rising Canadian star Bianca Andreescu, there's a little more to do before she rests. The Mississauga, Ont., native extended her season another two weeks, playing a pair of small tournaments on the International Tennis Federation circuit. There are no ball boys or girls, no Hawk-Eye, and the crowds are a fraction of the larger pro events.
Janine Beckie, 23, and Jordyn Huitema,16, represent the present and future of the Canadian women's soccer team but their paths to the national squad couldn't be more different. Born and raised in Highlands Ranch, Colo., Beckie came up through the American soccer system. When she was released by the U.S. U-20 program, the Canadian Soccer Association swooped in. Beckie was eligible to play for Canada due to her dual citizenship.
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".
