Draft day for any league is a day for hope and promise. In many ways, the CWHL Draft accomplished just that with new beginnings for draftees, opportunities for players from nine different countries, and the finalization of the two Chinese rosters set to join the league in an unprecedented expansion of women’s hockey around the world. But the day was marred if you weren’t a player, staff member, or parent.
Pia Sterner is not much of a drinker. She never has been. She has a glass of wine now and then. That’s it. So, when former Soviet national team coach Anatoli Tarasov said to her in 1974, “If you want to be a really good coach, you have to drink vodka,” Sterner’s first thought was, “Shit.”Sterner was out with Tarasov and a full room of Russian hockey players celebrating the end of a coaching symposium, the punctuation on her eight months under Tarasov’s tutelage in Moscow.
Since Finnish goaltender Noora Räty has agreed to play for the CWHL’s new expansion team, she’s been a little busy. She’s done a few interviews here and there, but mostly her schedule has been filled by the goaltending school she helps direct, working with girls and boys from age eight through to college-level. The toughest are the 12- and 13-year-olds. “Their attention span is pretty short,” she says.
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".
