The Ontario government is eyeing Netflix as a source of more Canadian content. And Google, or YouTube, or any “new media broadcasting activities,” according to the province’s submission Monday to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC). The broadcast regulator is exploring the future of TV north of 49, and it seems the province wants old Canadian content (Cancon) rules extended to the wild west of the internet.
Silicon Valley is a notorious “boys club” and historically hostile to female employees’ advancement, but two of the biggest tech companies are looking to keep more women around with a pledge to pay to freeze their eggs. Facebook and Apple told NBC News they’re going to cover non-medical egg freezing and the annual storage fees, a first among major U.S. employers and something advocates hope will spur more to follow their lead.
Disney is remaking its 1950 Cinderella musical classic into a live-action film, and the first trailer is everything you want it to be and more. First of all, we actually get to see Cinderella’s mom, who tells her life will work out if she has courage and is kind, so her super-nice demeanor finally makes sense. Then the evil step mother enters: Cate Blanchett rocks an awesome green gown when she waltzes in with fluffy Lucifer on his kitty leash.
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".
