Pop Goes The News — Canadians may not be able to watch their country’s athletes compete in next year’s Commonwealth Games. With just a little more than six months to go before the 11-day event kicks off on the Gold Coast in Australia, no Canadian broadcaster has been secured. According to a source, the CBC balked at covering the 2018 Games, citing costs and the fact that the competition takes place only weeks after the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
Pop Goes The News – Jesse Eisenberg and Alexander Skarsgård are heading to Montreal this fall to star in The Hummingbird Project for Canadian filmmaker Kim Nguyen. The two stars will play New York cousins who work as “high-frequency” traders who take on their old boss in a race to build a lucrative fiber-optic cable system from Kansas to New Jersey. Cameras are scheduled to roll from Oct. 15 to Dec. 15.
Pop Goes The News — The stars will be out in Montreal this fall as cameras roll on several feature films. As first reported by Pop Goes The News on June 8, Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Homecoming) are in Montreal this month to start work on the sci-fi movie Chaos Walking, directed by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity), along with Mads Mikkelsen and Demián Bichir. Chaos Walking is based on a trilogy of novels by Patrick Ness published between 2008 and 2010.
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".
