For most people, it’s likely that receiving a distracted driving ticket and a sizeable fine would be enough to encourage them to put their phone away while driving. That was not the case for the driver of a rental car in Vancouver on Wednesday. In fact, it seems one ticket in one evening just wasn’t enough for the motorist. The first incident took place in the 2500 block of Granville Street, when the driver was stopped and ticketed for distracted driving.
Claude Monet’s Secret Garden marks the Vancouver Art Gallery’s most well-attended exhibition to date, having attracted over 150,000 patrons over the summer.

Gallery hours will be extended to 9 pm on Wednesday, September 27 until Saturday, September 30, with the exception of Friday.
A teenager in New Westminster had to be hospitalized this past weekend after allegedly being beaten by a man with a metal baseball bat. The incident began at around 8 pm on Saturday, when the teen – along with three others – was walking home down the 700 block of 20th Street in New Westminster. All of a sudden, a soccer ball that belonged to one member of the the group rolled into the road and into the path of a passing vehicle.
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".
