Looking at Kirstine Stewart’s career trajectory, she defies assumptions that women are lacking in ambition. Starting out as an assistant at a film distribution company, she soon worked her way to the top of the business, becoming president by age 30. At 38, Stewart become the youngest person, and only woman, to head the CBC. Since then, she’s bounced from one opportunity to the next—from executive VP of Twitter Canada, to chief strategy officer at Waterloo-based new media giant Diply.
Don’t expect to be coddled at McMaster’s med school. Students in the three-year condensed program are required to learn just as much as their colleagues in typical four-year programs—but with less supervision. “The M.D. program was founded in the 1960s on the premise that medical students should learn medicine the way that physicians practice medicine,” says Dr. Robert Whyte, assistant dean of the undergraduate medical program at McMaster’s Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine.
As a successful student in high school with an afﬁnity for science and math, Nicole Ewert was torn between studying health and computer sciences in university. When she came across the bioinformatics program at the University of Calgary, it occurred to her that she didn’t have to choose. “Those two things seem quite separate,” says Ewert, now in her fourth year in the program, “but together, they can really be powerful.”Bioinformatics is where biology and computer science collide.
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".
