It's Friday, so expect a better trip this morning. Volume will likely be lighter — lots of kids have a PA day today. There will still be lane reductions along much of the Sir John A Macdonald Parkway today for roadwork. Those will run 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.And don't drive to the Grey Cup if you're going. Your ticket gets you on the bus for free. In fact, steer clear of Lansdowne entirely on Sunday unless you're on foot, on a bus or on a bike.
Much colder out there this morning, but it was windy enough that the puddles dried up before they froze. For the most part, anyway. Holy collisions yesterday. Not sure what got in to everybody, but there were a few road closures as a result. One of those collisions involved a driver hitting a cyclist on the O'Connor Street bike lane at Waverley Street. So, in three days there have been two pedestrians and a cyclist hit. Police sent this out before the bike lane collision.
It's wet and mild out there this morning. There may be some visibility issues on the highway as a result. Here's hoping for a day without any pedestrians being struck. It would be nice for a change. Police say they've found the suspect vehicle from Monday's hit & run in Little Italy. Now they just need to find the driver. I see dangerous situations all the time involving drivers and pedestrians.
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".
