Two Manitoba curlers will try to help Canada defend its gold medal at the 2018 Winter Paralympic Games. Sanford’s Dennis Thiessen and Oak Bluff’s James Anseeuw make up part of the team that will compete in Pyeongchang, South Korea. They will be joined by Ontario’s Mark Ideson, B.C.’s Ina Forrest and Saskatchewan’s Marie Wright. Thiessen will once again throw second stones for Canada, four years after winning gold at the Sochi Paralympics.
Three Manitobans will get a shot at cracking Canada’s roster for the upcoming World Junior Hockey Championship. Winnipegger Cody Glass, Oak Bank’s Brett Howden and Brandonite Tanner Kaspick were among the 32 players invited to team’s selection camp. Nine cuts will be made before Canada’s tournament opener against Finland on Boxing Day. Glass made history this past summer by becoming the first ever player drafted by the Vegas Golden Knights.
No matter where Canada’s national women’s squad plays, it’s sure to spark Olympic-size goals. A dream some on the team are still chasing. Among the players looking to crack Canada’s Olympic roster are Manitobans Jocelyne Larocque, Bailey Bram, Halli Krzyzaniak and Brigette Lacquette. Out of the four, only Larocque has been to the games before. “She’s such a great leader and such a great player,” Krzyzaniak said. Advice to give the rookies a better shot at making the team.
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".
