What else should first greet visitors to the Canada Goose Arctic Gallery — which opened June 21 at Ottawa’s Canadian Museum of Nature — than ice? Yes, real ice. After passing through the gallery’s entrance, the first display is a jaw-dropping multimedia installation called Beyond Ice. Developed in conjunction with the National Film Board, the display features scenes and animation by Inuit artists projected onto large blocks of pointed ice emerging from the floor.
It was a seemingly unlikely alliance. On June 8, 2016, global energy giant Shell, the Nature Conservancy of Canada, WWF Canada and the federal ministers for fisheries, the environment and Indigenous Affairs announced that the former was donating 30 contested energy exploration permits in Nunavut’s Lancaster Sound to the NCC. That organization was in turn handing the permits back to the feds, making way for the creation of the proposed Lancaster Sound National Marine Conservation Area.
Well, this was one of the closest cover votes in a while. The three options for the July/August issue of Canadian Geographic were separated by margins of just four per cent. Perhaps not coincidentally, our internal team of experts was similarly divided on which version was best: publisher Gilles Gagnier favoured option one; newsstand sales consultant Scott Bullock preferred option three (as did I); creative director Javier Frutos thought option two was tops.
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".
