401 12 Ave. S.E. 403-264-6046 I can’t recall the space in the former rooming house ever hosting anything other than an Italian restaurant. It’s because the lease, drawn up by a gentleman of Italian extraction, demands it. Its latest incarnation of Italian-ness arrived last September, brought by the people behind Kensington’s Hayden Block Smoke and Whisky. They’ve used the building’s antiquity to good effect; remnants of old wallpaper peel away to reveal original drywall and brick.
After losing his job as a charitable fundraiser, Michael White’s world began to fall apart. His friendly landlord passed away. He was evicted from his downtown apartment. He was without a job and without a home. It was the start of a desperate four months for the B.C. native, who was also struggling with seizures caused by a childhood head injury. “I went to my church, (which) had a support group for me,” says White, 61, recalling the events of three years ago.
Calgary has long been ground zero for homelessness in Alberta. Homeless rates are higher here than in Edmonton largely because of a relative lack of rental housing in Calgary, say academics and anti-poverty advocates. “It’s the availability of rental,” says Tim Richter, president of the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness.
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".
