Re: There is no fast lane, Letters, Oct. 6Rupi Mittal is exactly who Robert Peebles is talking about. Arrogant, obnoxious and self-absorbed with the attitude: “I am going the speed limit and I don’t care and will not move over for you.” The signs “Slower Traffic Keep Right” means just that, once you have passed and are no longer keeping up with traffic, move over. What it does not mean is that if you are going the speed limit and there are others behind, you can stay there.
People often talk about the academic standing of Canadian children. What’s often ignored, however, is the direct line running from healthy eating and keeping active to mental health and academic performance. Many of Canada’s children have never had poorer diets or been less active. Meanwhile, junk-food ads have targeted and brainwashed kids, jeopardizing the well-being of future generations for a cheap buck. This is nothing short of a crisis that will only get worse without action.
Many people have been bear watching at places like Glendale Cove in Knight Inlet on the B.C. coast. It is usually a pastoral setting with the bears lounging or feeding on the grass flats. It is easy to understand why these people might question the hunting of grizzlies. However, even if bear watching were to see exponential growth, it would still only occupy a small percentage of grizzly habitat in B.C. Ending trophy grizzly hunting in the rest of B.C.
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".
