Tia Cummins reinforced Monday the label "winner" need not be reserved for the athletes who climb the medal podium at the 2017 Canada Summer Games. Cummins, a few days shy of her 14th birthday, was on Cloud 9 following a solid effort in the female 1,500-metre freestyle timed swimming final at Pan Am Pool. It's a torturous, 30-lap race, as the 12th-place finisher will attest.
Week 2 of the Canada Games kicked off today and Manitoba has won two medals. Both were won on the water at the Manitoba Canoe and Kayak Centre. James Lavallee won a bronze medal in the men's 500-metre kayak final in the early afternoon. Lavallee is a member of the Canadian National Canoe/Kayak Team and has represented the country twice at the World Junior Canoe/Kayak Championships. A couple hours later, Nicole Boyle and Maddy Mitchell won silver in the women's C2 1,000-metre final.
After a flurry of heart-pounding action, disappointing losses, and unrivalled success, the Canada Summer Games have gone quiet for a day while week one athletes head home and week two competitors arrive. It's the perfect opportunity to look back at some of the memorable moments the Games have provided so far. Victoria Tachinski and Emma Gray are Manitoba's only gold medallists so far in the Games.
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".
