The Saskatchewan Roughriders’ first practice at Leibel Field in 2017 was conducted under mostly sunny skies Monday. So much for any effect from that solar eclipse. The celestial event was the first total solar eclipse visible in centres across the United States since 1979. In Regina, the moon was to block 78 per cent of the sun’s rays at the height of the eclipse.
On July 8, the Roughriders beat the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 37-20 in a CFL contest at Mosaic Stadium. Saskatchewan then went into its first bye week of the regular season, confident that the momentum generated by its first victory of the campaign would carry over to its next game. On July 22, the Roughriders were run over by the Calgary Stampeders, who prevailed 27-10 at McMahon Stadium. On Aug. 13, the Roughriders manhandled the B.C. Lions 41-8 at Mosaic Stadium.
The Saskatchewan Roughriders have been here before. Earlier this CFL season, the Roughriders went into a bye week riding a wave of positive vibes after thrashing the visiting Hamilton Tiger-Cats 37-20 on July 8. The Roughriders enjoyed their time off, with some returning to their homes across the continent and others remaining in Regina to get acclimated to their new surroundings.
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".
