As part of the annual CKNW Leadership Series, Chris Brentlinger-Grant takes a look at how leadership on and off the field has helped the Vancouver Canadians recently add to their already impressive trophy case. LISTEN: Leadership on and off the fieldIt had been three years since the Vancouver Canadians could say this, but the team is back atop the Northwest League of professional minor league baseball after capturing their first championship since 2013 and fourth in franchise history.
Vancouver’s Granville strip was the site of a double stabbing early this morning. Police responded near Robson St. at around 2:30 a.m. and found two men, ages 29 and 55, were injured. VPD Constable Jason Doucette says both were taken to hospital, but are expected to recover. Doucette says the suspect fled the scene right after the stabbing and that it doesn’t appear to be a random incident. Police are asking any witnesses who may have video of the confrontation, or any information to come forward.
Neo-Nazi posters were spotted along the route of Vancouver’s 32nd annual AIDS Walk, according to an event organizer. Neil Self, chair of the Positive Living Society of B.C., said the posters were spotted along the walk’s two-kilometre route around Stanley Park’s Lost Lagoon. “People think because of whatever our issue is – like, if we’re gay men or intravenous drug users – there is still that stigma saying you deserve that,” Self said.
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".
