Both the men's and women's downhill were being held that day (the men's because it had been postponed from a week earlier by a lack of snow), and the rest of the English-speaking Canadian media were on the slopes to cover alpine stars Steve Podborski, Todd Brooker, Laurie Graham and reigning world champion Gerry Sorensen. None of them reached the podium but as they skied, back in town, Boucher was trying to better the time already skated by his chief rival, Sergei Khlebnikov of the Soviet Union.
There's nothing like standing on the podium to validate a new figure skating partnership. Last week in Vancouver, Burlington's Olivia McIsaac and her partner Elliott Graham of Angus (near Barrie), took silver in the junior dance event at the 2018 Canadian Tire National Skating Championships. "It's crazy," a happy McIsaac told The Spectator in Vancouver. "We just started skating together 10 months ago.
"The poem was from the perspective of an abused woman who had passed on and the line was something about 'I know that I should wish him well but I hope that man goes straight to Hell.' "I know it's about getting to forgiving and moving on, but the reality is that at a certain point in people's lives, they have a certain feeling and that feeling, whether it's right or wrong, should be expressed."
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".
