In the summer of 2015, Derek Gee of Osgoode stood at a crossroads. One road, much like the ones he had spent hundreds of hours riding on in practice and competition, would lead him into a long-term relationship with amateur and, maybe, pro cycling. The other road, much like the one he had travelled 10 months of the year for the past 12 years, would direct him to post-secondary education. Which road to take? Both made sense. But the thought of doing both at the same time seemed overwhelming.
At one of the most dramatic stages of the Maccabiah Games men’s softball championship game last month, an unprovoked, light-hearted moment innocently unfolded on the Kibbutz Gezer diamond in Jerusalem. For many of the spectators, seeing a cat run onto the diamond as Canada tried to rally from a two-run deficit in extra innings was funny.
As a defender, Monti Mohsen was more about preventing goals than scoring goals on the soccer pitch. Still, he harboured the dream of being in the right place at the right time to record the goal that triggered a golden moment. Well, the Grade 12 Gloucester High School student lived out that dream Saturday night at the Canada Summer Games in Winnipeg. He counted the one and only goal in the final minute of the men’s gold-medal game as Ontario defeated Alberta 1-0 to shut out Alberta 1-0.
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".
