Like many, Kyle Carpenter is working on his game. Also working on his Swedish. “I’m not speaking Swedish fluently, but I’m improving everyday,” says Carpenter, who is living in Uppsala, Sweden, working as an au pair. Carpenter, 23, is also playing hockey while in the country, the first Canadian to ever play Division 4 in Sweden. It’s the Aros Hockey League, and Carpenter — a goaltender — initially suited up with the Uppsala Jackdaws, but has since moved to Gastrike-Halsinge NIF.
A resilient bunch, these Cornwall Colts, who have shown the ability to bounce back from tough losses. In the process, the team has avoided prolonged losing streaks. The Colts have had just one four-game skid this season (even then, two of the losses were in overtime, resulting in a point) and one three-game losing streak. Apart from that, four two-game skids, including the one that ended on Thursday, the Colts beating the Pembroke Lumber Kings 6-2 at the Cornwall Civic Complex.
For the St. Lawrence Saints, it’s all about peaking at the right time. The Saints of course, have their ticket punched for the OFSAA senior boys basketball A championships. As the hosts, the Saints will be in the provincial tournament (March 5-7) for the fourth consecutive year. “Right now, we’re trying to get through the exam break,” said Jamie Carr, who coaches the Saints with Bob Carlisle.
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".
