He certainly didn’t help us out with attention-grabbing sound bites. The most revealing quotes about Halladay came from the people around him. Roy Halladay didn’t make us better writers, but every fifth day he gave us a chance. And for any writer willing to follow his example, Halladay set one with his intense dedication to his craft.
After nearly two years as a Calgary police officer, retired Olympic speed skater Cindy Klassen is still surprised when she makes a traffic stop and the driver being disciplined recognizes her. Klassen’s six career medals are the most of any Canadian winter Olympian, but even best-in-class speed skaters rarely enjoy the mainstream stardom that turns athletes into household names. Klassen, now 38, hasn’t competed since 2015, and sometimes forgets that many Calgarians still find her face familiar.
This season’s stats tell a more compelling tale, and heading into this weekend’s series against the Blue Jays, Halladay is putting together his strongest season, even by his own stratospheric standards. They were the third and fourth the Marlins earned off Halladay on an evening in which the 2010 Cy Young winner would complete seven innings without earning a decision, but Buck knows better than to judge Halladay on that night’s numbers.
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".
