Sitting around a boardroom table in a partly constructed Fairbank apartment, 51-year-old Keith Belleau, who’s been in and out of prison his whole life, explained in a low voice why he believes the unit will help people with stories like his get back on track.
Canadian women are joining those who have accused disgraced Hollywood mogul, Harvey Weinstein, of sexual harassment after a New York Times investigation revealed he’d received dozens such accusations — ostensibly avoiding consequences — over the course of decades. A spokesperson for Weinstein has denied that any of the allegations constitute sexual harassment, saying that all of his contact with his named accusers was consensual.
A picture is emerging of the rescue mission that has a young North American family on track to come home after five years in captivity in Afghanistan. Canadian Joshua Boyle, his American wife Caitlan Coleman and their three young children were in the trunk of their captors’ car in Pakistan near the Afghan border when Pakistani troops rescued them. A gun battle ensued, though details of what exactly happened are not yet clear.
Prison inmates go back into communities when they're granted day parole. Halfway houses help them adjust. Read my story on Keith's experience here or in tomorrow's @TorontoStar:
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".
