Whenever the discussion has turned to Ben Simmons over the last six months, a sort of cool confidence seems to underlie the words of whatever member of the Sixers organization happens to be speaking. I don't know how to describe it other than to say that it suggests a sort of knowing, as if the person talking about Simmons is privy to some sort of inside information that all of us will come to acquire in due time. Just you wait and see, the tone says.
Not half the professional hockey players in the world can say they’ve experienced playing in an officiated outdoor game, let alone one nestled in the Swiss Alps—a mini European Winter Classic just three days before the NHL’s version between the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers. This game, however, pitted the Concordia Stingers against the Swiss League’s EHC St. Moritz.
Concordia’s national championship dreams were crushed minutes into the CIS quarter finals as the St. Francis Xavier Xmen, ranked sixth in the tournament, outplayed the Stingers, ranked third, from tip-off to final buzzer. The game finished 98-82 at the Halifax Metro Centre in Nova Scotia on March 9. Concordia just couldn’t keep hold of the ball and were cold when shooting it, with X-Men MVP Thomas Terry taking advantage of their misplays, scoring a game-high 39-points.
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".
