A group of heroic Calgarians were honoured at the Chief’s Awards Gala Thursday night. Among those recognized were Daxton Novak and Derek Widerman, who helped a woman who tried to kill herself during a drug-induced psychosis. Novak says they jumped to action after noticing the woman was hanging on for her life from the balcony above their sixth floor apartment. “I’d like to think that we kind of did whatever two people thrusted into a situation like that would have done.
The Save of the Game promotion between the Calgary Flames and Shane Homes was another huge success. Shane Homes pays $5 for every save a Flames goalie makes during the NHL season. Vice-President Dave Rickett with Shane Homes announced Wednesday morning on Boomer in the Morning on Sportsnet 960 The Fan, that his company would be presenting a cheque worth $11,000 to KidSport. “You know, KidSport is very close to our heart. We’ve been doing this for a few years now, and other organizations.
Ken King, the CEO of the Calgary Sports and Entertainment Corporation, confirmed Wednesday that talks between his group and the City of Calgary regarding a new arena for the Flames are ongoing. While the CalgaryNEXT proposal is still an option, most of the discussion at the moment is focused on the idea of building a new rink in Victoria Park. “They [talks] continue,” King said. “They have been largely productive and we expect and hope they will continue to be productive.
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".
