A driver who said his vehicle was damaged by a cyclist in a road rage incident in Central Saanich is sharing video of the encounter in hopes the culprit can be found. Steve Bengal said he was driving on Oldfield Road Tuesday at around 5:30 p.m. when he noticed a cyclist on his right. He said he crossed the centre line of the road to pass the cyclist and that’s when the man darted in front of the vehicle unexpectedly.
The Victoria SPCA is dealing with one of the largest cases of animal hoarding the branch has ever seen after 56 cats in rough shape were surrendered last week. Officials say the cats were found in overcrowded and unsanitary living conditions at a home in Greater Victoria, with many suffering from untreated conditions. “It’s been pretty tough. I started with 10 and then we ended up with 30, and then we had over 50 cats coming in,” said Victoria SPCA Manager Annie Prittie Bell.
A 1963 comic book featuring Spider-Man’s first appearance could fetch up to $1-million for a Victoria woman selling the iconic origin story, experts say. Amazing Fantasy #15 is etched in comic book history as the first time the world is introduced to Peter Parker, who is bit by a radioactive spider that gives him arachnid-like superpowers.
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".
