When the Slaibi family arrived in Blind River on Sept. 9, Blind River Sponsorship Group chair Roberta Wilson-Garrett recalls that, “They had only a few suitcases and a dream.”Two months later, the family of five are finding their way in their new country, after living for five years in what Wilson-Garrett terms a “refugee situation” in Jordan.
In a year of streaky performances, the Blind River Beavers are currently on a very positive trend. After starting the year with five straight wins, followed by a horrendous eight-game losing streak in October, the Beavers have now won eight of their last nine contests after taking three more victories last week. They began with a 5-3 triumph over the Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, Eagles, blasted the Elliot Lake Wildcats 7-2 and cruised past the Espanola Express 4-1.
Though their five-game winning streak may have come to an end, the Blind River Beavers have served notice that they will be in the thick of the battle for top spot in the western division of the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League. The Beavers split a pair of games against the two top teams in the western division last week. The Beavers began with a 2-1 road victory over the Sault Ste. Marie Thunderbirds, but then were defeated 2-0 at home by the Rayside-Balfour Canadians.
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".
