An often celebrated day for the Calgary Flames with their annual Charity Golf Classic was quickly sullied on Tuesday night with a bombshell from Flames president and CEO Ken King. Speaking alongside NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, King announced the Flames would no longer be seeking a new arena deal after talks with the City of Calgary stagnated.
MEDICINE HAT, AB – After a year in the basement of the Alberta Major Bantam Hockey League, the SEAC Bantam AAA Tigers are looking for a bounce-back season. Over the weekend, the team held try outs culminating with a fast-paced scrimmage on Saturday afternoon. Hitting the ice at the Family Leisure Centre on Saturday were 45 veterans and prospects looking to crack the 2017-18 SEAC roster.
After months of games, practices and training, summer is usually a time for NHL players to kick back and relax before the puck drops again in the fall. The Calgary Flames have been no different, with many of their players letting loose over the past few months. From weddings and golf trips (lots of golf trips…) to rattling off shots on strangers’ hockey nets, the Flames have had an interesting off-season to say the least. Here are some of the highlights.
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".
