Regardless of the sport, the balance during the preseason is getting a look at younger players, filling out those final few roster spots, but making sure your front-line players are ready for the regular season.With that in mind, the Blues’ game roster for Tuesday’s preseason opener in Dallas leans more on getting a look at prospects, and filling out final roster spots on defense.Many of the team’s younger players, particularly those who were impressive in the Traverse City prospect...
Tage Thompson led all scorers among the eight teams participating in last week’s NHL prospects tournament in Traverse City, Mich.The young Blues forward is playing like he never left Michigan. He had a goal in regulation and found the net again during the overtime shootout playing for the Blue squad in Sunday’s Blue-White scrimmage.But it was Paul Stastny who scored the shootout clincher for a 3-2 victory for the White team before an overflow crowd at the IceZone in Hazelwood.
When Amazon last week announced plans to open a second full-service headquarters somewhere in North America, it set in motion a frenzied bidding war between major cities like Boston and Toronto. But smaller cities across the U.S. also want their chance to vie for a piece of the pie. Understandably, since the HQ2, as Amazon is calling it, is expected to hire 50,000 highly paid workers and invest some $5 billion in construction and operation.
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".
