EDMONTON — They gather often here, those Glory Years Oilers, for the closing of an old building or the opening of a new one. For anniversaries of Cups won, and pretty much any other reason they can think of to fly in, tell some lies, and re-live the 80s one more time. This reunion was a first, however. One nobody fathomed would come this soon. “Most of the celebrations in here have been pretty darned good.
EDMONTON – The Edmonton Oilers will have Connor McDavid in their lineup for the entirety of his prime, until age 29 at least, and they’ll pay him $100 million for that right. What a problem to have. Amid all the online hysteria of how the Edmonton Oilers would afford both McDavid and his No.
Little known fact: The last World Hockey Association goal ever scored came off the stick of one David John Semenko. “Yep,” Semenko would nod, years after the old circuit had been put to rest, “I made that league what it is today.”Sadly, it’s big Dave’s turn now, after being admitted to hospital just two weeks ago, a victim of that most wicked foe, pancreatic cancer. Semenko died early Thursday morning, just 13 days shy of his 60th birthday.
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".
