The restructured contract reportedly agreed upon by Jon Jennings with the B.C. Lions is one of the first signs that the reality-based world under which they operated under Wally Buono for years will be no different with Ed Hervey in charge.
The wisecracks started arriving in the in-box almost immediately. Make more than one move involving another CFL team, as when the B.C. Lions announced the appointment of Rick LeLacheur as club president Monday, and the one-liners were inevitable. How long will it be before Bryan Hall is hired to replace Bob Marjanovich in the broadcast booth? Hugh Campbell is coming in as the new club consultant. How much time before Mike Benevides and Barron Miles are repatriated?
One more turn to the final page on the calendar. Suddenly, it’s almost Christmas. Just as suddenly, it’s realistic to think there might eventually be some nice new presents under the tree with the appointment of Ed Hervey as general manager of the B.C. Lions. The move by Wally Buono to hand over control of the top job in football operations after 15 years means there’s about to be a new way of thinking with the CFL team, and of course not a moment too soon after last year’s 7-11 tire fire.
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".
