Jordan Greenway of USA in action during the Hockey test match beteween Italy and USA on May 2, 2017 in Milan, Italy. The men’s ice hockey tournament is getting an extreme makeover for the 2018 PyeongChang Games. For the first time since 1994, National Hockey League players will not be a part of the competition.
The U.S. team is the most diverse ever to compete at a Winter Olympics. Along with Nathan Chen and the ShibSibs, the athletes include first-generation Korean-American snowboarder Chloe Kim, a three-time X Games gold medalist, who is the favorite to win the half pipe. Maame Biney is the first African-American woman to qualify in short track speed-skating. And figure skater Adam Rippon and freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy will be the first openly gay men to wear the Olympics red, white and blue.
Three events are making their Olympic debut—and one, its return—in PyeongChang, bringing the total number of competitions to 102. Kicking off the Games is mixed doubles curling, which gets underway ahead of the opening ceremony (competition begins Wednesday, Feb. 7, 11/10c, NBCSN). This is a shorter version of the traditional game of sliding “rocks” (aka the playing stones) down the ice, with one male and one female player per side, as opposed to the four-person units in the team events.
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".
