The Cochrane Generals had been on a roll of late this past month winning 9 out of 12 games in the Heritage Junior Hockey League. And the team had a glorious opportunity to catapult ahead of the second place High River Flyers, and possibly even sneak ahead of the Southern Division leaders, the Okotoks Bisons, when the Generals hosted both teams this past weekend. The last time Okotoks came to town back in early November, Cochrane won 5-2.
The Cochrane Comets Swim Club hosted their first swim meet in Cochrane this past weekend, December 16-17, and it was a huge success. Five different swim clubs and 175 swimmers participated in the weekend activities. “This was just a small meet,” said Comets’ coach, Danielle Genung. “We wanted to ease in for our first meet and it was an opportunity to showcase our club.
Christmas time is steeped in tradition, and this past weekend, December 9, a long- time tradition occurred at the Devil’s Head Ranch, which borders the Stoney Nakoda Nation. Every year Doug and Jill Richards host a Christmas tree party where 30 to 40 invited guests invade the forest with saws and axes and cut down their own trees to beautify their homes for the festive season.
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".
