Ronni Hublall came to 1269 Danforth Rd. four years ago to set up her hair salon. She was taking a chance, moving from a Lawrence Avenue storefront to a unit at the rear of the new plaza where she paid for repairs and upgrades. It was, she says now, a mistake. “I made a bad choice going in the back,” said Hublall, in between clients on a Tuesday morning. Business was never as good in the hard-to-find spot. But the 71-year-old business owner learned this year that location was the least of her problems.
When Robert Cotie finally found his subjects – a crowd of punk-rockers relaxing and sleeping in a spot with their packs, seemingly pulled out of time in a quiet corner of Kensington Market – his hands were shaking badly enough he needed to borrow a tripod. “I was so excited finding these people,” said Cotie, standing next to a print of the photograph he took with a disposable Fuji camera.
Councillors on Toronto’s Community Development and Recreation want the city to spend $772,000 next year to open up 20,000 more spaces in city recreation programs in 2018. The recommendation from the Nov. 20 committee meeting is double what city recreation staff had recommended in a strategy intended to increase recreation services more gradually over the next three years to meet growing demand.
Doug Ford is in fine form this morning, in a release annoucing his 4:30 p.m. King Street pilot project news conference: "It is the sign of weak leadership to allow bureaucrats in an ivory tower to determine City policies."
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".
