MORRISBURG — Some of the numbers were pretty good — such as a 77 to win it, five off par. Others, not so great — like 46, the total number of golfers in the SD&G high school golf championships, held at Upper Canada Golf Course on Tuesday. “There just aren’t enough golfers,” said Trevor Thompson, teacher at Seaway District High School and convenor for the event. Most schools were represented, but none hit the maximum number allowed.
Flamed out at the Shorty a bit, but we would suggest he’s the closest thing curling has to a rock star. Talked briefly with Thomas Ulsrud the other day, and the 46-year-old from Oslo can best be described as a laid-back dude. Forget hanging out with his fancy pants at curling rinks, he looks like he should be surfing along the fjords of Norway. We checked, and yes they do surf in Norway, though pretty sure Ulsrud does not.
The Shorty started in style, Thomas Ulsrud and his team from Norway made sure of that. The Ulsrud rink beat Sweden’s Niklas Edan 7-5 in one of two opening matches to start the AMJ Campbell Shorty Jenkins Classic at the Cornwall Curling Centre. They also won some fashion points, with those bright pink pants. “A tribute to Shorty,” said Ulsrud, whose team is known for its colourful attire.
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".
