Good morning. Have you heard the news? The CFL finally came to its senses today — deciding to change the video review rule. It will now only allow coaches one challenge a game. Amen! There were at least two times this season where I turned off a game after a ridiculous away-from-the-play challenge was made. I get that it was a ‘rule’ but the coaches abused the spirit of video review and they deserve to have it stripped away from them.
Hello, how is it going? I got a call from a reader recently — he wanted to know why we were still talking about hockey and running so many hockey stories in the paper when it was clearly summer outside. I explained to him that the NHL had just had its annual draft; the Jets followed that with their annual development camp at the Iceplex; and then free agency saw the team dip into the market, signing goalie Steve Mason and defenceman Dmitry Kulikov.
Good morning! How was your extra-long Canada Day weekend? Man, you have a good boss, giving you four days off! Hope you took a few minutes to keep up with all the news in town. The Bombers won in Regina to open their season — I’ll get to that in a few minutes — and the Jets made a significant splash during the first day of the annual July 1 free agent feeding frenzy, signing goalie Steve Mason and defenceman Dmitry Kulikov.
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".
