After his days in Prince George and then Medicine Hat in the Western Hockey League, the “Boogeyman” surprised many by making it to the big leagues, where he played for six seasons with the Minnesota Wild and the New York Rangers. Tragically, he died from an accidental overdose of booze and pain meds in 2011. He was just 28. The judge had little choice in the matter. Boogaard’s parents weren’t the appointed trustees of their son’s estate, a legal requirement to sue on its behalf.
Show, don't tell, is often the most convincing form of argument. Most people will believe their own eyes before they believe what they hear.If the City of Prince George wants no problem getting the referendum passed to borrow about $50 million from the Municipal Finance Authority to pay for a new Fire Hall No. 1 and a replacement for Four Seasons Pool, they should make sure everyone sees the two videos on the city's YouTube page.
Two short months ago, when the provincial election was in full swing, Christy Clark and her B.C. Liberal candidates were calling NDP leader John Horgan "Say Anything" John, insisting he was only telling voters what they wanted to hear in order to win, instead of what he would actually do if he did win. Funny how an election result has changed Clark's tune.
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".
