Good morning,If you’re looking for a job, the conservative parties in Western Canada have some openings. Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall announced his retirement from politics on Facebook yesterday. In the video, Mr. Wall said his Saskatchewan Party is ready for a “renewal” but he plans to stay on as premier until his successor is chosen. After years as one of Canada’s most popular premiers, Mr. Wall’s approval ratings dipped slightly this year.
Good morning,Next time you’re staying in another city, watch out -- you could be crashing at a politician’s pad. Derek Fildebrandt, a member of the Alberta legislature and the United Conservative Party, has landed in a bit of hot water for listing his Edmonton apartment on Airbnb, the site where people can bypass hotels and book short-term stays.
Good morning,Making policy based on data is good. Making policy when you have no data...not so good. The man who wrote the guidelines we use for creating passwords now admits he was pretty much just making thing up when he recommended, in 2003, that we all add numbers, mixed case and special characters to our P@ssw0rd5 and change them every few months. The rules have led to many forgotten passwords, most of which aren’t really that secure after all.
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".
