For Cam Hillis, it was always a matter of when he would play for the Guelph Storm, not if. The rookie centre was one of six Storm players who played their first game in the OHL Friday night, as the Storm opened the regular season with a 4-3 shootout loss to the Sarnia Sting. A second-round draft pick in 2016, Hillis didn’t report to the team last season and was committed to an NCAA scholarship at .
There is light at the end of that tunnel for Guelph Storm fans. And for the first time in a while, it’s not a freight train. For the first time since 2013, it’s exciting to be a Storm fan on opening night. Last season was “yeah it’s a rebuild but shouldn’t we be better?”Two seasons ago was “we’re supposed to suck but that doesn’t make it easier to watch.”Three seasons ago it was “hope we don’t hold on to certain players just so we can get a round of playoffs.” (Editor’s note: they did.)
Alice McMillan has some pretty simple advice if you want to make it to 104: “you’ve got to smile.”Alice, who has lived in the same house on Lyon Avenue in Guelph for 76 years, turned 104 on Wednesday. Bed ridden but sharp as a tack, she enjoyed birthday cake, chatted with the many family and friends who stopped by and sipped on some ice tea. “That’s later,” she said with a smile.
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".
