It’s been 40 years since Indigenous activist Lorelei Williams’ aunt, Belinda Williams, went missing from Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. And it’s been more than 20 since her cousin, Tanya Holyk, was reported missing (she was later identified as one of Robert Pickton’s victims). That’s why Lorelei has worked tirelessly to shed light on missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls (MMIWG) over the years, granting interviews to more media outlets than she can count.
This year marks one decade since the United Nations adopted its Declaration on the Right of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), a universal framework that encourages the international community to treat Indigenous people with dignity and respect — but it’s only been one year since Canada fully supported it. Now, Canadians are waiting to see if meaningful implementation of the declaration will take place, with some saying a lot of work still lies ahead.
UPDATE: Curiosity has now landed! Click here for the full story. All eyes will be on the Red Planet Sunday night, as NASA's rover, Curiosity, lands on Mars. It's expected to touch down at 1:31 a.m. ET (10:31 p.m. PT). NASA launched the rover last November from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. As the space agency's most ambitious rover, Curiosity will explore with greater range than any previous Mars rover, according to NASA.
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".
