It was quite the weekend for Cape Breton University's soccer teams. The men's and women's Capers teams competed for national titles against the University of Montreal Carabins. The men competed in Kamloops, B.C., and the women in Winnipeg. The men's Capers team took home the gold — but not without a struggle. They went into double overtime, then penalty shots and then sudden death. "Our goalkeeper pulled off one of the best saves I've ever seen under such pressure," said head coach Deano Morley.
The topic of Cape Breton autonomy has been raised again, this time by well-respected Sen. Dan Christmas. Christmas was in his home community Thursday to deliver the first annual Father Greg MacLeod Lecture to an audience of nearly 200 people. In Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada: Reflections on an Island, the country's first Mi'kmaq senator offered bleak statistics on depopulation and poverty rates in Cape Breton.
Marijuana will be legalized in Canada next July 1, but how that will play out in practical terms is still a mystery to many, including municipalities and businesses. About 100 people attended the two-day Atlantic Cannabis Forum Wednesday and Thursday, staged by the Cape Breton Partnership, hoping for some answers. The agenda covered a spectrum of topics, including social policy, acceptable places for using cannabis and the projected immense gap in the supply of pot once it's legalized.
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".
