Seniors homes can be synonymous with being old, dreary and dark.But that’s far from the case at the Wellesley Retirement Residence in Pointe-Claire, where one senior citizen has been given carte blanche to paint the dining room walls as he pleases. His fellow residents are thrilled and feel it’s breathing new life into their living space.“The art work here I think it’s fantastic,” 93-year-old Betty Grothé said.
The brother and eldest son of Meryem Anoun, the cyclist killed in Rosemont last Friday, spoke to Global News in their first televised interview less than one week after the accident. They insist they hold no anger towards the truck driver who ran over the single mother of three, but they hope drivers will pay more attention to the most vulnerable road users, pedestrians and cyclists. “We can’t expect people to be 100 per cent focussed on the road,” Meryem Anoun’s son Badr Jaidi said.
A Montreal business owner is outraged after getting arrested and fined for failing to put her chihuahua on a leash. The woman admits she lied about her name, which led to her arrest. But at least one lawyer believes the officer’s response, in this case, crossed the line. Sabrina Tutino was taking a stroll outside her apartment with her pet chihuahua last Thursday when police moved in to question her.
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".
