VANCOUVER — Watching the announcement this morning of who would make the 2018 Olympic figure skating team was a light-hearted occasion. For the athletes who were informed last night that they would be making the trip to South Korea as Olympians, the announcement was simply the proverbial 'cherry on top.' There are 17 athletes heading to Pyeongchang, and for the most part they are seasoned athletes. But for the Olympic rookies, it's like a dream come true.
VANCOUVER — The short programs set the stage for the final round of competition at the national figure skating championships in Vancouver. With an Olympic spot on the line, here are the moments that stood out for me in each discipline:Gabrielle Daleman is as fierce a competitor as I have ever known. Not one to whine, she called her bout of pneumonia a chance for extra cardio training. Daleman took the lead in the short program and followed it up with a 'take no prisoners' clean free skate.
VANCOUVER — After a day of skating which had me on the edge of my seat at the Canadian National Figure Skating Championships, here are the moments that stood out from the short programs in each discipline:After what I would call a hit and miss kind of morning with the ladies' short programs, Daleman took the ice.
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".
