A group of BASE jumpers used parachutes to glide safely to the ground after leaping off a highrise building under construction in downtown Vancouver, but now the danger for them could be the long arm of the law. Yaletown resident Mike Daniels was in his 36th-floor apartment between 1 and 2 a.m. Monday, Sept. 4, when his wife told him someone had jumped off the building across the street. As he ran out to his balcony, Daniels saw one jumper with his parachute already open floating by the building.
A B.C. man facing a dozen charges of aggravated sexual assault for not disclosing his HIV status to people he had unprotected sex with doesn’t believe certain people living with the virus should be required to tell sexual partners. Now, some Vancouver civil libertarians, along with scientists from the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University, are backing up his argument.
Heavily armed police broke down the door of an Olympic Village townhome before calling in the fire department’s Hazmat team to help them pack up a suspected drug operation Monday afternoon. Witnesses say the 4:00 p.m. raid played out like a scene from an action movie as Emergency Response Team officers armed with assault rifles surrounded the building at Columbia Street and W. 1st Avenue.
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".
