Bull riders with head injuries are being offered expanded medical and mental care in the aftermath of the suicide of Ty Pozzobon. Professional Bull Riders tours in Canada and the United States implemented a new health and wellness program this year and plan to expand services to all rodeo competitors as early as the summer. The 25-year-old from Merritt, B.C., killed himself in January of 2017 after suffering numerous concussions over six years.
When he was six years old, Ethan Bear attended a hockey camp put on by Fred Sasakamoose, the first Indigenous player in the NHL. As part of the festivities, each child was called up onto a stage during a mock draft. When it was his turn, Ethan was presented with a Chicago jersey by Sasakamoose, who joined the Blackhawks near the end of the 1954 season. Raised on the Ochapowace Cree Nation in eastern Saskatchewan, Bear is 20 now, and likely to make his NHL debut within the next few days.
His five-hour shift in the world's longest hockey game done, Jouni Nieminen curls up on a couch. His body aches from a fall that occurred as he was skating backward five days earlier. A muscle may be torn inside his left hip. He presses on. Fatigue and misery surround him inside the dressing room. It is five days into this attempt to reclaim a Guinness World Record, and one of his linemates is playing with cracked ribs. Another's toenails are falling off. A fourth player has a ruptured bicep.
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".
