MONTREAL—The Quebec government wants to maintain strict controls over retail sales of marijuana when the drug is legalized by Ottawa in July 2018. The province’s public health minister Lucie Charlebois tabled legislation Thursday morning that would create a subsidiary of the Quebec liquor board to handle the exclusive distribution and sale of pot through retail stores and online. “We would have liked to have more time … but we have no option to be ready,” Charlebois told reporters in Quebec City.
Thanksgiving is all about family, food and giving thanks. It is the time to share wonderful things like turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie and plenty of family time. However, preparing a holiday feast can lead to disaster if risks associated with preparing a large feast are not managed. According to the American Red Cross, the kitchen is the setting of more fires than any other room in the house, and cooking is the leading cause of fires in the home.
“It’s a little world that often leaves the impression that we all know each other. We do, but we don’t know each other as much as we thought, clearly,” he wrote. One comedian, François Morency, responded to the allegations on Facebook, saying that he had been involved in Just for Laughs since 1993 and credited its platform for his success.
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".
