Beerability rankings were originally produced by Justin Bourne, formerly of The Score but now part of the Toronto Marlies coaching staff. Justin has kindly allowed One Puck Short pick up the the format. For those unfamiliar with the term, beerability it is defined as:Ever wanted to sit down a sink a few beers with your favourite player? Of course you have, we all have. But I think it’s fair to say some personalities lend themselves to that sort of situation better than others.
While the final may have been contested between two old enemies, this year’s Winter Olympics in Sochi demonstrated both how far the women’s game has come in many other nations, and how the standard of goaltending has risen across the board. It was essentially a “given” that either Canada or the United States would take home gold in the women’s hockey tournament, but where Amanda Kessel et al were the focus before the tournament, it was two European netminders who ultimately stole the show.
Having started the year 8-13-2, it’s safe to say the Edmonton Oilers are not (currently) in the position they might have hoped to be after making the playoffs for the first time in 11-years last season. Inevitably questions are going to be asked about why the team has slumped from Conference semi-finalists to 29th overall, but the manner in which these questions are manifesting seems somewhat mind boggling.
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".
