He does not plan to mention head injuries in his speech, either. A quiet and private person, Kariya has made it clear he does not want to be the public face of the sport’s concussion problems. In recent years, the discourse on head injuries in sports like football and hockey has become more public, sometimes laid bare in Hall of Fame ceremonies. N.F.L. players like linebacker Junior Seau and quarterback Ken Stabler were inducted posthumously into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
TORONTO — Two years ago, former NHL defenceman Chris Pronger was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame after a career ended, in part, by post-concussion symptoms. When he retired, he said, “My cognitive skills are a little suspect at times.” But in his induction speech, he did not mention his concussion history. Last year, Eric Lindros was inducted into the Hall, nine years after he had to retire at 34 because of a series of concussions.
This is the last week of the CFL regular season, which will finally settle all the interesting playoff matchups. Keep your eyes on the Edmonton-Saskatchewan game. If the Eskimos win, which I predict they will, and Winnipeg loses to Calgary on Friday, which I predict they will without Matt Nichols, the Eskimos will clinch second place and host a playoff game.
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".
