That's the question facing Toronto as some parts of the city experience rapid, intense development: Which buildings deserve to be protected as heritage? And downtown, a group of neighbours is casting their attention to a set of cottages that are older than the country – but which are being cut down.
Sidewalk Toronto is here. But what is Sidewalk Toronto, exactly? At a public meeting Wednesday night, locals got a chance to ask questions about the partnership announced Oct. 17 between Google sister company Sidewalk Labs and the public agency Waterfront Toronto. And they had plenty of questions.
In 1988, it was a house with an open door. Casey House was born in an old Victorian in Toronto's Gay Village, where a dedicated staff took in people dying from HIV/AIDS. "It's going to give many people a better last few weeks or months than they otherwise would have had," its founder, the late activist and journalist June Callwood, told The Globe and Mail. Nearly three decades later, both the disease and the institution have changed.
@terencecorcoran@MrBikesABunch@HertzBarry@nationalpost “The growth has already happened.” Wrong. The city estimates the core will add 225,000 people in the next 25 years. Will all those people get around by car? If a new subway is built, what about the 15 or 20-year interim?
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".
