For now though, people who rent the bikes have to return them to the campus grounds. The pilot is being tested solely at the University of Toronto, in collaboration with the University of Toronto Student’s Union (UTSU), though the company plans to expand to other parts of the city at an undisclosed later date.

Four years after they were charged, three TTC employees were found guilty on Friday of obstructing justice and fabricating evidence. Michael Schmidt, Tony Catic and Jan Posthumus were among the five transit enforcement officers originally charged in 2013. The TTC’s executive director of communications Brad Ross confirmed that they were found guilty. Two other officers, James Greenbank and Neil Malik, were acquitted of all charges, Ross said.
St. Catherine’s Chapel at Massey College was given a major status upgrade Tuesday, when Queen Elizabeth II designated it the third Chapel Royal in Canada. The Chapel Royal originated as a group of religious leaders and singers that followed the monarch around to attend to their spiritual needs. But King Henry VIII expanded the designation by creating physical Chapel Royal spaces in many of the royal palaces in the 1500s.
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".
