The Calgary Stampeders are headed to the Grey Cup in Vancouver next weekend and the Edmonton Eskimos are headed home. The Eskimos were trounced 43-18 by the Stamps in Sunday’s CFL West Final. Calgary will play the East Division champion Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the championship game, which could be similarly one-sided, so comprehensively excellent are the Stampeders.
EDMONTON — Dallas Eakins has been pro hockey’s so-called ‘hot date’ for obvious reasons and when Oilers GM Craig MacTavish interviewed the man who would become the Oilers’ fifth head coach in six seasons, he must have felt he was speed-dating himself. The 46-year-old Eakins is bright, witty, charismatic. He commands a room with ease, speaks in sound bites. He is, as MacTavish noted, unflappable under pressure. Like MacTavish, it is easy to imagine Eakins tearing a strip off a player, if required.
EDMONTON - With athletes, it’s often said the legs go first, sometimes the hands. Or the confidence. The cause of the decline in performance may not be easy to pinpoint, at first, but the drop-off itself is easy to chart. With the pro sports franchises themselves, as led by the coaches, general managers, executives and owners, what erodes first to cause a downturn in fortunes? A slowing of organizational reflexes? Chronic poor judgment? Misplaced loyalty? A fuzzy mission statement? Internal conflict?
@juliettekayyem To advocate arming the teachers is to assume these horrific mass shootings, like hurricanes and floods, are natural disasters one cannot prevent, one can only prepare for and defend against when they inevitably occur. Disturbing, self-serving NRA position.
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".
