It’s CFL Awards time, and it’s no coincidence that many of those nominated will be taking the field on Sunday in the 105th Grey Cup. Here is a look at who might walk away with the hardware after walking the red carpet at the ceremony Thursday night in Ottawa. This is a photo finish. Reilly had more passing yards (5,830) and TD passes (30), a higher efficiency rating (103.9), and played one more game than Ray.
By now you know Canadian phenom R.J. Barrett has chosen Duke as the next destination on his basketball odyssey. Barrett’s announcement was more family reunion than press conference with family, friends and former coaches in attendance. It was a joyous occasion until I looked at my Twitter mentions. When I left the euphoria of the announcement I immediaetly saw push back on line. The assertion was made Barrett wasn’t a “real black man” or in some way less authentic because he choose Duke University.
If you haven’t heard by now the U Sports Uteck Bowl was trending for all the wrong reasons. The final score was 81-3 for the visiting Western Mustangs over the AUS-champion Acadia Axemen. Western scored 11 TDs and barely seemed interested, never mind tested. More alarming was the score could have ben much worse.
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".
