I’ve always been a bit isolated from the community of wilderness travelers—particularly canoeists. Despite thousands of kilometres and days spent wandering in a canoe I haven’t had much interaction with other passionate long-distance paddlers. My home base is North Vancouver, British Columbia—a land of mountain bikers, trail runners and whitewater kayakers.
There is no shortage of back stories in the NYSPHSAA Division II semi-final match-up between West Seneca West (WSW) and John Jay (JJ) high school Saturday at HarborCenter. From players who were once cut to ninth graders playing big roles this is a game where everyone will skate away with a great sense of accomplishment. JJ head coach Alex Smith is not just the bench boss for the Indians, he is also a teacher. “I’ve taught most of them and see them around school all day,” he said.
The West Seneca West Indians hockey team have gone from underachievers to Section VI Small School Champions in less than a year. On Monday night they knocked off the No. four seeded Sweet Home Panthers 2-1 to claim their first title since 2013. Senior forward Matt Myers assisted on both Indians goals and junior netminder Noah Sobczyk turned in a remarkable 30 save performance for the win. “It wasn’t easy,” WSW head coach Kevin Rozo said after the game. “Sweet Home with a heck of a battle.
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".
