Dying your hair neon colours might be all the rage on humans these days, but an animal shelter in Florida has issued a stern warning not to pass the style on to pets. The Pinellas County Animal Shelter posted photos to its Facebook page this week of a dog named Violet, who was in extreme pain after her fur was dyed. The shelter spent months caring for the white Maltese mix, whose owner had abandoned her after the dye job.
An acclaimed Montreal novelist and graduate of the Concordia creative writing department says she has mixed feelings about the news this week that Concordia is looking into allegations of sexual misconduct within the department. Concordia University President Alan Shepard issued a statement Monday saying he is “disturbed” by what he read in a blog post by author and former student Mike Spry that makes sexual misconduct allegations against members of the English department.
Concordia University says it is taking steps to address allegations of pervasive sexual misconduct in its creative writing department. In a news conference Wednesday afternoon, Concordia President Alan Shepard said that all forms of sexual misconduct will not be tolerated, adding that the university is launching an investigation into the claims, and will also launch a university-wide task force into the environment at Concordia, particularly with respect to sexual harassment.
@HugoPrevost Yeah the current exoskeletons are a great step, but it would take two hours to get done the block! Once they have one that can run and climb stairs it might be useful - but it wouldn’t come cheap!
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".
