Are you confident Canada will negotiate a fair deal for itself during NAFTA talks? If you’re playing competitive baseball at this time of year, it’s probably a big deal. That’s certainly the case for a trio of Medicine Hat-and-area girls, who are used to playing with the boys but are getting a chance on provincial and national girls teams to close out their summers.
What should the speed limit be on Parkview Drive from 11th Avenue to 20th Street NE? They’re not a heavy-hitting team, but the Edmonton Prospects hit the one they needed over the heads of the Medicine Hat Mavericks to earn a 4-3 win Wednesday. Jake Lanferman slugged an 0-1 curveball from Connor Deeds over the head of centre fielder David Salgueiro in the ninth inning, completing a comeback and sending most in the crowd of 1,648 at Re/Max Field home happy.
Would you consider buying an electric car? Every time there was a close play Monday night, it seemed a Medicine Hat Mavericks player was a split second ahead of the tag. Hard-hit balls by the Edmonton Prospects landed comfortably in a Mavericks’ glove. In playoff baseball, that can be all the difference. The home team was just a bit better in a 5-3 win to start the Western Major Baseball League’s Western Conference finals, but both sides know the margin was slim.
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".
