Taken at face value, the St. Thomas More Knights’ exhibition record is pretty impressive. At 2-0 and without surrendering a point, the Burnaby AAA varsity football program could hang its hat on that accomplishment and feel pretty impressed. That’s not going to happen, however. STM kicks off the regular season today (4:30 p.m. Friday) with the Kelowna Owls in town, looking to maintain the upward trajectory the players have established over the past two weeks.
The team that Jack Crosby and Dan Mattinson built is reuniting to mark a special anniversary. The members from the last B.C. team to win the Minto Cup in Ontario, the Burnaby Cablevision, are celebrating the 40th anniversary of the historic win this weekend with a golf tournament and get-together. Leisure suits and puka shell necklaces, unfortunately, will be optional.
With last year’s league finalists the Seattle Saracens as the opposition, the Burnaby Lake Rugby Club’s premier women’s team entered Saturday’s tilt with some question marks. Have they made strides to improve on last year’s underwhelming results? Could they stop Seattle’s outside game, which played havoc with the defence last season? And were they capable of settling down for a home opener, with a healthy lineup? The end results proved to be yes, yes and yes.
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".
