Canada's athletes are getting ready to show the world what they can do at this year's Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, and Quebecers will be front and centre. Of the 225 athletes who will represent the Great White North, 50 will come from Quebec. Quebec sits third behind Ontario with 68 and Alberta with 54 for the province with the most athletes competing.
The Montreal Canadiens are keeping with their annual holiday tradition of giving back to the community by buying gifts for underprivileged children. For almost a decade, the Canadiens have done it by teaming up with Opération Père Noël, a charity that works with youth centres around Montreal. Opération Père Noël gives the Canadiens letters to Santa and then the players' partners, and other members of the organization, go get the gifts.
In just under a month, Brianna Miller, Alex Tessier and Frédérique Rajotte will be in Ireland, representing Canada at the Women's Rugby World Cup. They are just three of seven Quebecers who will be competing at the Aug. 9 to 26 tournament, at which Team Canada hopes to build on its accomplishments at the 2014 World Cup, when the women took home the silver medal.
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".
