Those of you who saw the movie “Arrival” can skip the next two paragraphs. Their purpose is using some of the ideas in the film to suggest how it’s possible to have different perspectives on time. For the rest of you, the movie is about the arrival of an extraterrestrial civilization on Earth. The heroine of the movie, played by Amy Adams, is a linguist charged with helping translate the aliens’ language.
There’s been a lot of inflation in Canada lately. But it’s not been happening in the sector people are usually referring to when they’re using that word – i.e., consumer prices. Those have been pretty dormant in the last few months, nestled comfortably below the Bank of Canada’s 2% target. In fact, May inflation released on Friday showed headline year-over-year inflation sliding to 1.3% that month. Instead, the inflation involved is in the statistics used to measure inflation itself.
The Canadian dollar scrambled higher this morning after Statistics Canada reported employment rose by 55K in May, a result that reinforces the view Canada’s domestic economy is gathering a good head of steam. Economists had expected job creation of about 15K in May after the small increase of 3K in April. The jobless rate rose by 0.1 percentage points to 6.6%, as more people entered the labour market, exactly in line with expectations.
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".
