Billy Two Rivers and the representatives of Van Morrison have an agreement-in-principle to settle Two Rivers’ lawsuit against the musician and his record and promotion companies. No dollar figure has been released, which will likely remain confidential. No word on whether or not Two Rivers’ iconic image of his wrestling in the United Kingdom in the early 1960s will remain on the album cover. Although that image remains on Van Morrison’s website as of press-time.
It may have been more than 40 years since Billy Two Rivers last stepped into a wrestling ring for a professional bout, but that doesn’t mean he’s willing to give up everything he accomplished in his career. The world famous wrestler from Kahnawake made a name for himself by wrestling professionally in the United Kingdom in the 1950s and 60s. It’s an image from that time in his life that has now popped back up on the world stage, but not in any ring.
The true origins of lacrosse will be on display next month as the Canadian Lacrosse Association (CLA) celebrates its 150th anniversary. The fact that the modern game coincides with Canada’s birthday is no accident. It is believed that lacrosse was brought to the rest of the country by George Beer, who learned to play it in Kahnawake in the 1840s. Louis Delisle is a student of the game. He also happens to be enshrined in the Ontario Lacrosse Hall of Fame.
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".
