Before leaving on vacation we leave you with a final instalment on the Monday morning musings and meditations on the world of sports, you lucky dogs. • During the B.C. Lions training camp in early June, it was pointed out to Travis Lulay that his arm looks better than it has since his salad days in the early part of this decade. The veteran quarterback did not disagree. “I can tell you it’s the best it’s felt since 2012,” Lulay said. “Now I’m not thinking about it.
He's 67, has a sore back and tired legs. The only thing that doesn't get old in Wally Buono's life is winning. The story is at least five years in the making, but the latest Intel to emerge from the sale of the B.C. Lions suggests the deal will close by the end of this season or when the polar ice cap melts, whatever comes first.
B.C. Lions' ace defenders T.J. Lee, left, and Ronnie Yell discuss game strategy while sitting on the players' bench. DARRYL DYCK / THE CANADIAN PRESS FILES It’s difficult to conceive of a ruptured Achilles tendon as a good thing and, truth be told, T.J. Lee would have preferred to go through his career without that character-building life lesson.
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".
