On Thursday the Petes open their 62nd season. That makes the Petes the oldest continuously operating franchise for any junior A team in the Canadian Hockey League. In September 1967, the Petes opened their 12th season in Canada's centennial year. The Ottawa 67's joined the OHA that year making a 10-team major junior A league. Petes coach Roger Neilson was starting his first full season at the helm of the Petes.
The Lakers playoff series with New Westminster Salmonbellies is the sixth time these two iconic teams have squared off in a national final. This will be the fifth time for the Mann Cup. New Westminster won in 1959 and 1970; the Lakers prevailed in 1982 and 2010. But arguably the best series of them all was in 1969. That season the Lakers played in a semi-professional league with three other Ontario teams.
The closing of the Canadian General Electric plant in Peterborough will impact many local lives. Besides those who will be losing their jobs, many others have been greatly affected by the plant over the years. I grew up in the shadow of its smoke stack on Sherbrooke Street. My father worked there from 1940 until his death in 1960. As a kid, the CGE affected practically every aspect of my life in the hood. Our day was measured by the CGE whistles.
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".
