Eighteen of the 33 students who were on a canoe trip at Algonquin Provincial Park arrived at C.W. Jefferys Collegiate Institute in Toronto by bus around 1 a.m. ET, appearing physically and emotionally drained, and still coming to grips with the death of classmate Jeremiah Perry. The students had been camping since Sunday at the park some three hours north of Toronto when Jeremiah went missing on Tuesday evening while swimming in Big Trout Lake.
Baljinder Sekha is so passionate about Canada that he will literally be singing its praises today. Sekha will be surrounded by family and friends as he performs a song he wrote at two different Canada Day celebrations in Brampton, including Chinguacousy Park. "I'm not a professional singer," Sekha said. "I just like to sing." He affectionately calls his song 'Go Canada,' something that will sound familiar to most Canadians. "Actually, I picked that wording from hockey," he said.
Cycling is quickly becoming one of the most popular forms of transportation in downtown Toronto — and it's driving up demand for more bike lanes on the city's major routes. "Bike lanes are like condos, they're coming up everywhere," said Toronto Police Sgt. Jeff Zammit, a senior cycling officer with 14 Division. Zammit has been patrolling the streets on his bike for more than 20 years. He even relies on bike lanes to get to a crime scene more quickly, he said.
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".
