Eighty California dogs will soon be flying into Vancouver and all of them are looking for a second chance at life – and love. The Vancouver-based rescue Thank Dog I Am Out (TDIAO) is hosting a mass adoption event at Landmark Aviation at YVR the weekend of November 4 and 5. But there’s a catch – only pre-approved adopters are allowed to come. Similarly to dogs featured at previous events, most of the Californian dogs are under 30 pounds.
Animal welfare officials say the seizure of 20 designer dogs from a woman who sells puppies online underscores the urgency to finalize B.C. legislation that would require breeders to be licensed. The small-breed dogs and puppies were removed from a property in Chilliwack, east of Vancouver, after a search warrant was executed by members of the BC SPCA.
A young man from Maple Ridge, B.C., is among those killed in what's being described as the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. Jordan McIldoon was 23 years old, according to his family. He was visiting town with his girlfriend, says Jacob Bros Construction in Surrey. The Sunday night shooting outside a country music festival has left at least 58 people dead and more than 515 injured. U.S. President Donald Trump is calling the incident "an act of pure evil."
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".
