A brazen 250-pound black bear has been killed after breaking into a home on B.C. 's Sunshine Coast, terrifying the family by refusing to leave. Someone in the home finally punched the adult male bear in the nose to make him retreat outside. Elery Froude was alerted around 5:30 p.m. Saturday when her toddler son yelled "mom look" and turned around in time to see the bruin coming through her sliding glass door, says RCMP.
It just became a little bit harder to fill up your car in the city of Vancouver. Chevron confirmed Wednesday it has sold two more gas stations in the city, both of which will close this week. The move comes as the U.S.-based energy company looks to cash in on Vancouverâ€™s sky-high property values, and housing shortage. The Chevron at Oak Street and West 41st Avenue will close today, and the location at West 16th Avenue and Cambie Street will follow suit Friday.
Lucy is Vancouver’s newest rescue pup and perhaps the city’s luckiest as well. The terrier Chihuahua puppy was found duct taped into a box with her brother Ethan after the duo had been left for dead in California. The region she was found suffers from a pet overpopulation issue, and it’s not uncommon to see small pups dumped at shelters, or worse, out in the open where they can’t be helped. But this pint-sized pup wasn’t out of the woods 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".
