The Peterborough Pagans proved they are worthy of playing in the Ontario Rugby Union's top league. The Pagans got a preview of what the competition is like in the ORU's Marshall Premiership with a 31-17 win over the Oakville Crusaders in the opening round of McCormick Cup playoffs at Nicholls Oval. The Pagans earned the right to promotion to the Premiership next year by winning the Marshall Championship Division title last week.
Peter Hercus is making an impact in his first season as head coach of the Trent Excalibur women's rugby team. The Excalibur didn't win a game in 2016 but their skin-of-the-teeth 27-26 victory over the University of Toronto Blues on Saturday improved their 2017 OUA record to 2-1. It was their first home game at Justin Chiu Stadium this season. Coaching a smaller university team has its challenges. Nancy Marcotte coached Trent for 14 years and had some success.
Steve Montador's buddies wanted to find the right way to remember their friend. At Team 55's Friday Night Lights fundraiser the organizers of HOPE (Helping Others Participate Equally) unveiled the Steve Montador Student Bursary. The former NHL defenceman suffered from the effects of concussions prior to his death at age 35. The bursary will cover the costs of expensive neuro-psychological tests students suffering from concussions require to get a modified work load at post-secondary institutions.
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".
