Vancouverites love their pets, but let’s have some real talk here: Being a responsible owner is a huge time and energy commitment. Thankfully, Vancouver is a city that’s packed with services to help pet owners that make ownership so much easier. Here are six lifesavers I count on to help me be the best pet guardian I can to my two fur babies. With two dogs, we go through a significant amount of kibble in our house. And those bags are heavy.
Superstar Ryan Reynolds has come home to shoot the sequel for the superhero flick "Deadpool." While some production for "Deadpool 2" has already taken place on Vancouver Island, multiple scenes for the Hollywood blockbuster will be filming in the Vancouver area for most of the week. It kicks off Tuesday night between 7 and 11 p.m. with a scene on a small tower at 1090 West Pender Street, according to a production notice from TCF Vancouver Productions posted to buildings in the area.
With millions of coffee cups thrown away each week in Vancouver, the city is mulling a ban on single-use coffee cups, and other disposable items cluttering up trash cans. City staff have been researching ways to reduce disposable cups, foam takeout containers and plastic bags since February of 2016.
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".
