The February 26th, trade deadline is fast approaching, and the Los Angeles Kings made a move that improves their defense. The Kings acquired Dion Phaneuf and Nate Thompson from the Ottawa Senators for Marian Gaborik and Nick Shore. A Phaneuf-for-Gaborik swap would have rocked the hockey world back in 2008 but is merely just another of many transactions a decade later.
Post-termination payments and the importance of notice
30 January, 2018

Against the backdrop of Carillion, parties need to keep in mind issues of payment upon termination of a construction contract.
The Los Angeles Kings have been jostling for a position in the Western Conference playoff picture. They now find themselves in third place in the Pacific Division, but just one point ahead of both the Calgary Flames and Anaheim Ducks. In the current Western Conference wildcard standings, the Minnesota Wild hold the second wildcard spot, and they’re tied with the Kings in points. Needless to say, the hunt for the playoffs is tight.
This #CNN town hall with Parkland students is incredible. @marcorubio is taking the full wrath of the students. He was asked if he would consider not taking campaign money from the @NRA. That didn’t go over well. https://t.co/cGqph6zp2I
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".
