Montreal archeologists are playing detective this summer, as they search for the missing Iroquois Village of Hochelaga. The archeological survey project, part of Montreal’s 375th, began this week in Outremont Park. Jacques Cartier wrote about the village of Hochelaga in 1535 and described it as being situated near Mount Royal. That was the first and only time anyone has written about seeing the village. Five years later he visited the area again, only to discover that the village was gone.
A new public space, being touted as a “welcoming and lively meeting place”, is coming to downtown Montreal and will feature an outdoor skating rink. The winning design for the final phase of the Place des Arts hub was unveiled on Sunday. The $67.1 million Clark Esplanade will be a four season public space in Quartier des Spectacles at the corner of Clark St. and Ste-Catherine St. W. in downtown Montreal.
The AMT withdrew four of its cars from circulation after a passenger thought they saw a bed bug on the Montreal to St. Jerome train. The passenger alerted an AMT employee on Thursday evening and the cars were pulled out of service soon after in order to carry out a thorough inspection. “We effectively saw bugs so we called an exterminator and made sure that the cars were treated.”The bugs were sent away for analysis to determine if they were, in fact, bedbugs.
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".
