It’s time for a brief refresher course in volleyball. The Grande Prairie Regional College Wolves men’s volleyball team is smack-dab in the middle of the standings race in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference North division after the first half of the semester. After 12 games, the Wolves are 5-7 and in a three-way tie for third place. The club is 3-3 on its home court and 2-4 as the visitor. “I was a positive first half,” Wolves head coach Mitchell Schneider said.
It’s a fair, but wounding statement on all things women’s basketball related at Grande Prairie Regional College: the Wolves aren’t good right now. Numbers don’t lie. They have no emotions attached to them just, cold, hard truth. The Wolves own a 0-12 at the mid-way point of the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference schedule with exactly 12 games left in a season long over.
Going into the new year the Grande Prairie Storm management team isn’t exactly sure what kind of hockey team they currently possess. No doubt they’d love to know by now. Perhaps their followers have some thoughts on that as well. The Storm (17-17-3) sit fourth place in the Alberta Junior Hockey League North division though 37 games. The club is closer to seventh place than third place. This past weekend they dropped a pair of one-goal games to the Spruce Grove Saints at Revolution Place.
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".
