For Chris Hadfield, Canada 150 has been an opportunity to look back and look forward, collectively and personally. Looking back, his great-grandparents Austin Jack Hadfield and Anna Charlton were lured to Moose Jaw from Sheffield, England, in 1908 in hopes of farming. “It’s why Hadfields got to Canada in the first place, was to settle on the Prairies in Saskatchewan,” said Hadfield. But, “They didn’t get land,” said Hadfield.

Michael Bell / Regina Leader-Post Three noon-hours a week, the Rosemont Community School playground becomes a racetrack. Every lap of roughly 500 metres earns a Popsicle stick for each of the dozens of runners.
Jeff Fader caught a brief glimpse of Terry Fox in August 1980, as the 21-year-old amputee was running near Sault Ste. Marie. Fader was on a bus at around 5 a.m., returning from a vacation in Ontario, when the driver slowed down and got the passengers’ attention. “It was quite an emotional sight,” said Fader. That was just weeks before the end of Fox’s run; he was forced to quit on Sept. 1 as his cancer had returned, this time invading his lungs. He died the next year.
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".
