Brownie leader, animal lover and longtime member of Calgary’s Inglewood community, Cheryl Christmas, 50, was the fatal victim of a crash near the town of Strathmore on Tuesday, June 20th. Her two children, Megan and Henry Roy — both in their mid-20s— have put together a GoFundMe page to cover the costs they’ll incur in the wake of their mother’s sudden death. Megan Roy says her mother was an amazing part of the Calgary community and only moved just east of the city a year ago.
Police say two opposing protests were largely uneventful after roughly two hours of demonstrating on Municipal Plaza. The site was originally given to the Al-Quds rally, a group demanding peace for the oppressed and protesting what they see as the “Zionist occupation” of Palestine. Quds is Arabic for Jerusalem and it’s typically held on the last day of Ramadan.
A scary scene in the beltline as police witness a drive-by shooting near the corner of 10 Avenue and 10 Street southwest early Sunday morning. No one has been injured and at least one person has been taken into custody. The drive-by shooting occurred between Music nightclub and the Co-op grocery store. Police immediately cordoned off the area and investigators began interviews with dozens of witnesses. This isn’t the first time there has been trouble near the nightclub.
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".
