The sport of skeleton is not for the faint of heart. Athletes sprint down an icy track, dive onto a tiny sled head-first, then rocket toward the bottom of the course at speeds reaching 90 miles per hour. But when Matt Antoine watched the 2002 Winter Olympics, he was hooked. A year later, he made the pilgrimage to Lake Placid, New York, to give it a shot. "When you first go, there's not a whole lot of instruction. They just kind of give you some basics on how to lay on the sled," Antoine recalled.
As the U.S. Women's ice hockey team prepares to head to South Korea, the golden question is whether they can find a way to end Canada's gold medal streak. Two-time Olympian Hilary Knight is one of the stars on Team USA. She won silver in Sochi and Vancouver but hopes the third time is the charm when it comes to beating Canada at the Olympics. "The rivalry between U.S. and Canada is one of the most beautiful rivalries in sport," Knight said.
We’re one week into "No-Shave November," where participants forego facial shaving to raise awareness on cancer prevention and education. 12 News anchor Paul Gerke is getting hairy for the month-long challenge, reaching out to Arizona Coyotes team to see who is the beardiest of them all. “Alex Goligoski has the best beard, it fills up pretty nice,” said defenseman Kevin Connauton.
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".
