This year, like every year, Brandi Meloche made sure to find herself in attendance at the Remembrance Day parade November 4 to lay a wreath at Kahnawake’s cenotaph. On Saturday, Remembrance Day, she collected the wreath and put it on the grave of her neighbour and friend general Ernest “Sam” Phillips, who died in 1991 at the age of 69. The act is how Meloche honours her neighbour, his brother Louis and all those who served in the armed forces.
Five minutes into the RSEQ female rugby championship game Sunday, the Dawson College Blues women were a try up, and the Heritage College Huricanes squad was going to need to up its game dramatically and fast if the underdogs were to have a chance against the defending champions. Unfortunately for the Hurricanes, the Blues did not let up, and Heritage could not deal with the constant pressure of the solid Blues offence, as Dawson built a 24-5 lead by half.
It was cold in the air, but hot at the plate for Howard S. Billings’ Blazers girls softball squad that handled a short-handed John Rennie High School team in the GMAA finals Wednesday. Billings showed its collection of bats early knocking five runs in (the maximum allowed per inning) for their first trip to the plate after Rennie had scored two. After a scoreless second inning, Billings scored another five in the third suggesting the Blazers bats were going to run away with the 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".
