It is the crown jewel on a piece of prestigious real estate named after another jewel – Cap Diamant (the ‘diamond cape’) – and its unmistakable turrets with their verdigris copper roofs have made it one of the most photographed hotels in the world. This is Québec City’s Fairmont Le Château Frontenac, one of Canada’s most historic and elegant grand railway hotels, and as close to a castle as you can get in this 400-year-old city (or anywhere in Canada, for that matter!)
Urban street art is everywhere these days, and the subject of plenty of articles and Instagram feeds from around the world. But nowhere has this art form done more to transform a neighbourhood than in the streets of Comuna 13, in Medellin Colombia, an area once so notorious for its violence that visitors wouldn’t be caught dead there – unless it was literally.
Some posts are harder to write than others, but this one is a no-brainer. Montréal is known for its food scene, and when Henk and I were there a few weeks ago, we got a chance to try out some of the ‘old’ and new restaurants around the city, (all of which were new to us) which delivered everything we would expect from a foodie city. Here are 4 places worth checking out if you want to know where to eat in Montréal.
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".
