The City of Vancouver is ramping up the collection of needles discarded by drug users at a school and park adjacent to each other downtown. The city indicated in a media release Tuesday (June 20) that it has “increased safety efforts in response to concerns of needles found in Andy Livingstone Park and Crosstown Elementary School”. Andy Livingstone Park is used as a play area by Crosstown elementary students. According to the city, school staff members are conducting four safety sweeps every day.
The Vancouver school district is moving to strengthen protection of staff against bullying. New regulations are being introduced, which are specifically aimed at the conduct of board trustees elected by the public. The changes are in response to two investigations that have concluded that certain members of the previous board harassed and humiliated senior management staff. The said board was fired by the province in October 2016, and Dianne Turner was appointed as sole trustee.
Vancouver council has approved changes to city liquor policies following a review of current regulations. A number of these adjustments cover Granville Street between West Georgia and Drake streets. The Granville Entertainment District (GED), which runs on a shorter stretch from West Georgia Street to Nelson Street, has the highest concentration of liquor establishments in the city, and it is known for fights, assaults, and disorder.
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".
