Whitehorse hockey player Dylan Cozens propelled himself to the top of the rookie stats in the Western Hockey League after scoring a hat trick Saturday. Cozens is the top scorer — at least for today — among the league's rookies with 16 goals so far this season. He also made an assist in the game against the Kootenay Ice putting him just one point behind the leading rookie in overall points. This is Cozen's first full season with the Lethbridge Hurricanes.
Whitehorse-based charitable group Yukon Cares is hoping to bring four more refugee families to the territory within the next year or two, according to its president, Raquel de Queiroz. She said Yukon Cares — which sponsored the first Syrian refugee family to come to Yukon, two years ago — is working on a number of refugee files. The community organization was founded to re-settle refugees in the territory. It's now assisting an Eritrean man who has come to Canada from Israel, de Queiroz said.
Yukoner Darryl Tait hopes to be one of the first athletes representing Canada in adaptive surfing if the sport is successful in its bid to eventually become a Paralympic sport. Surfing will be part of the Olympics for the first time in 2020, but adaptive surfing — surfing for people with disabilities — has not developed to a stage where it can be part of the Paralympics. Tait said it's going to take a lot of building participation and support to get to that point.
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".
