The Ottawa Valley Vikings hosted the 17U Girls McGregor Cup tournament last weekend at Fellowes High School. The two-day meet saw nine teams from across Ontario take to the court for round robin play before Kingston VC defeated Pegasus 16U, which also hails from Kingston, in the gold medal championship final. The Ottawa-based Maverick Wildcards beat their sister team, Maverick Gamblers two sets to one to take the bronze medal game.
PETAWAWA – Town of Petawawa firefighters saved a home from a blaze that destroyed a garage Tuesday night. The department was called to a residence on McGregor's Bay Trail at 9:45 p.m. Upon arrival, they found the garage, which was attached to the two-floor house, engulfed in flames. The occupants of the home evacuated, however, one person received minor injuries and had to be treated on scene by County of Renfrew paramedics.
The Pembroke Lumber Kings unleashed a flurry of offence dispatching the Kemptville 73s Sunday night with a convincing 8-2 win. The crowd at the Pembroke Memorial Centre went away happy as Peter Falivena recorded a hat trick, while Connor Warnholtz and Malcolm Arseneau contributed a goal and an assist each. Kings goalie Jake Smith made 29 saves on 31 shots. The only troubling statistic for the Kings is the inability of special teams to click.
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".
