Maple syrup is sometimes known as “liquid gold,” but thanks to a new California law, another metal may be appearing on labels. According to a report by CTV News, the law will require large maple syrup producers — any of those operating with more than 20,000 taps — to include warning labels on their products if the syrup contains more than trace amounts of lead. But the Quebec Maple Syrup Federation would like to see all exporting maple syrup producers follow the law.
About 15 kilometres south of the Canadian border sits an igloo-shaped bar where you can fish straight from your seat—can you imagine the stories that get told in that place? The winter watering hole is located on the sprawling, 4000-square-kilometre Lake of the Woods, which stretches across parts of Northern Ontario, Manitoba, and Minnesota. The bar can be found offshore of Minnesota’s Zippel Bay Resort, and is accessed by guests via a large ice road.
When the ice on the backyard rink or lake are a little bumpy, some will pull out an old hose and bucket to flood and resurface it. But a dad from Dundas, Ontario, had an even better idea. With just a wagon, an old bucket, a rag, and a valve for the hot water to come through, he built his very own Zamboni.
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".
