A winter cold snap across Canada is leaving some families staring at a failed furnace wondering where it all went wrong this holiday season. One furnace repair shop in Windsor is getting more than 100 calls a day for none-functioning furnaces, as temperatures dip to record lows in the region. "It's been going crazy now," said Tony Obeid, who has spent more than two decades with Fahrhall Home Comfort Specialists.
A seven year-old-girl is thanking the people of Cottam, Ont. and a dog tracker who traveled for hours to help her find her little lost dog during a record-breaking blast of winter weather. It was two weeks before Christmas when London Ramsey's Shih Tzu Border Spaniel puppy Ivee ran away during a visit with her grandparents. "I was really sad," said Ramsey, who stayed with her grandparents to search for the six-pound puppy instead of returning home to Cambridge.
David Llewellyn has no idea what he's supposed to do if the nuclear power plant about 10 kilometres away from his home near Amherstburg, Ont. suffers a meltdown. He sees steam rising from the squat stacks of the Fermi 2 nuclear power plant every day when he leaves his home — a constant reminder of what could happen if something went wrong. "I have zero information where to go, what to do," he said, sitting in the Amherst Pointe home where he's lived for 17 years. "Nothing."

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".
