GRANBY - In Downtown Granby, Sherry Kent is slicing through the busy Thanksgiving holiday season by making pies at Showboat’s Drive by Pie. “It is the apple pie Olympics time of year,” Kent said. It’s an establishment where a person can order a pie, then drive up to the window and pick it up. “People drive up and I hand out pie right out the window, just boom there you go,” Kent said. She even has an emergency pie hotline in case you need to pick up a pie last minute.
It’s been 16 years since the Winter Olympics were held in the United States. And while a lot of Olympic host cities let their venues run down, that's not the case in Utah. Many of the same venues used during the 2002 Salt Lake City games are still being used today by athletes training for the 2018 Winter Olympics. In Park City, at the U.S. Ski and Snowboarding Center of Excellence, athletes work out using high-tech simulators and state of the art technology to get more out of their workouts.
In ski racing, getting Olympic gold often means spending some time at Copper Mountain. In the early hours of the day at Copper Mountain, employees have been getting the U.S. Ski Team Speed Center up and running. Copper Station in the east village and has been transformed from a ski lodge into a training ground just months before the winter Olympics in South Korea.
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".
