Hundreds of passengers are worrying about their holiday plans after American Airlines announced that 15,000 of its flights were scheduled without pilots due to a glitch. Karen McKenna of Whitby said she planned her Christmas vacation eight months ago. She initially booked a flight on WestJet to get to her cruise leaving from Puerto Rico, but in October, she said, she had to switch. “Because of the hurricane, WestJet and Air Canada cancelled all their direct flights down to San Juan,” she said.
A local bra and underwear company is using wings to lift women up and spread the message of body positivity. The Every Woman is an Angel campaign was created by Knixwear founder and CEO Joanna Griffiths about a month ago. It’s meant to show that women of all sizes, ages and ethnicities are beautiful and all bodies deserve to be celebrated. Griffiths asked artist Kelsey Montague, known for her whimsical street murals, to paint wings on a building on Peter Street outside Knixwear’s pop-up location.
The program, called the Digital News Innovation Challenge, is open to all Canadians. Five finalists will receive a total of around $150,000 each over a period of five months. They’ll also have access to Ryerson’s tech incubator, DMZ, as well as its school of journalism. “There’s no one ideal candidate. It’s really someone who has the passion to create something that will be disruptive,” said Ryerson School of Journalism professor and graduate program director Asmaa Malik.
I want to know exactly what happened. Once I know what happened I can answer the question: Saunders after being asked what it must have been like for Richey's mother to find her daughter dead #ChurchWellesley#Toronto#Torontopolice
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".
