Although the city is awash in sushi restaurants, Vancouverites now have one less option. After garnering a following during its eight-year run, Juno Japanese Sushi Bistro has called it quits. Located at 572 Davie Street across from Emery Barnes Park and just outside of Yaletown, the eatery closed its doors for good on May 27. The menu has included offerings such as sashimi, chicken karaage, tempura, chirashi don, live uni, sushi rolls, and even ramen.
The Vancouver Pride Society has announced the grand marshals of this year's parade. Tru Wilson and the Wilson family are being recognized as marshals for their work in helping to change school policies. The Wilson family filed a human-rights complaint against Ladner's Sacred Heart School and the Catholic Independent Schools of the Vancouver Archdiocese did not support her gender identity.
It's time to raise a glass and say cheers to a good cause. Vancouver's first Pride Crawl Fundraiser will be held from July 14 to August 6. It's a benefit for the West End's Dr. Peter Centre. It'll also help to raise renewed awareness about HIV and AIDS. This is particularly important because, in the age of app-based hookups, even though medical advances has improved the healthcare for people with HIV, the infection rate remains a serious concern and a cure has still not been found yet.
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".
