Canada may have been the economic star of the G7 in 2017. But this year we're tapped out, possibly crapped out and maybe hung out. Tapped out because consumers will be forced to ease up on spending that has pumped economic growth. Possibly crapped out because the oil market could be like a roll of the dice in a craps game, and Canada has already thrown a "7 out" on one count. And maybe hung out - to dry - at the NAFTA bargaining table. It's not that it's going to be bad.
It’s almost New Year’s Eve, which means it’s time to celebrate with your favorite bubbly beverage. If you’re looking to indulge in some of the best quality sparkling wines this holiday, look past the price tag. Instead, pay close attention to the bubbles. Both the sound of the bubbles and the size of them may shed light on the quality of the wine, according to scientists at the Applied Research Laboratories at the University of Texas in Austin.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau broke ethics rules when he and his family vacationed at the private island of billionaire philanthropist and spiritual leader the Aga Khan, Canada's ethics watchdog ruled Wednesday. The breach is the first ever by a sitting Canadian prime minister, but carries with it no sanctions. In a statement, Ethics Commissioner Mary Dawson said the Trudeau family post-Christmas vacation last year contravened the Conflict of Interest Act.

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".
