About a dozen women were waiting for Robert Armstrong when he came down the hotel stairs for breakfast. When the answer came, no amount of cheek could keep him from being startled: “We want to kiss the man who captured Riel,” the women said. Such was life as a hero in 19th-century Winnipeg.
The Supreme Court of Canada will not review the overturning of Dennis Oland’s second-degree murder conviction in the 2011 bludgeoning death of his father, the Saint John businessman and Moosehead brewing scion Richard Oland. The decision Thursday morning means that Mr. Oland will face a retrial in a case that has shocked and enthralled his home province. Mr. Oland’s defence and the Crown were both seeking a leave to appeal last October’s ruling by the New Brunswick Court of Appeal.
It was Prince Charles’s County for a day, as the heir to the British throne continued his sesquicentennial visit to Canada in a slice of Eastern Ontario with deep historic ties to the monarchy. The giddy crowds in Prince Edward County that greeted Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, belied recent polls showing a decline in support for the monarchy across Canada, and little enthusiasm for the Prince of Wales in particular.
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".
