A smaller share of Canadians are satisfied with their work-life balance than eight years ago, a period in which smartphones and the internet have become deeply embedded in the everyday life of people under 75, a new Statistics Canada report notes. The findings, drawn from 2016's General Social Survey, suggest that although Canadians are broadly happy with the way technology has changed their lives, they may feel that some aspects of digital tech have penetrated too far into the domestic sphere.
New research from Statistics Canada suggests one in 10 sexual assaults that are substantiated by police result in a criminal conviction. The agency says the conviction rate for substantiated sex assaults between 2009 and 2014 was only 12 per cent. The conviction rate for physical assaults over the same period was nearly twice as high at 23 per cent. StatCan says the data reflects only the complaints that were validated by police and does not include complaints classified as "unfounded."
Two days after Stephen Paddock killed dozens and injured hundreds more in a hail of bullets from the window of a Las Vegas hotel room, far more is known about how he committed the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history than why he did it.
Save the Daily! It and Le Delit are cost-free journalism schools of the best quality and key community hubs for an institution that can feel sprawling and inhuman. All McGillers are better off for it. (Oh yeah, and it's where I learned to write.) https://t.co/MuczCVTCwS
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".
