Costco Canada has removed the option for online shoppers to purchase fireworks following a report from CTV Vancouver. The wholesale giant told CTV that the product would be pulled from its website Monday night, and that its policy has been changed. Costco's move followed a request for comment after CTV producers found shoppers could skirt local fireworks regulations by purchasing the products online.
On a quaint street in a town that loves its history, a cotton candy-coloured house is sickening for some, but sweet to others. The boarded up home near Mary Avenue and Glover Road in Fort Langley used to be white, but received a dramatic makeover last week following a dispute between a developer and the township. In addition to the bright pink walls, the owner added several plastic flamingos to drive home his point.
Vancouver police remain at the scene of a double homicide, combing for evidence, but their lack of arrests has residents in the area on edge. The bodies of 65-year-old Dianna Mah-Jones and her 68-year-old husband, Richard Jones, were found in their home in the city's Marpole neighbourhood Wednesday afternoon. Police were called to the house near 64th Avenue and Hudson Street after a friend of the couple stopped to visit and noticed something was off.
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".
