It’s the claim to fame that no city truly wants: the worst traffic in Canada. But it wasn’t until early 2017—when the CAA released the results of a study on the worst bottlenecks in Canada—that it was possible to determine what cities truly deserved to hold the title. According to the report, Canada’s 20 most congested roads cover a mere 65 kilometres, but account for over 11.5 million hours stuck in traffic per year. That’s an issue that not even the best road trip playlist ever can solve.
Lake Ontario has been in the news a lot this summer, but for all the wrong reasons. With waters reaching up to half a metre higher than usual, flooding along the lakeshore has led to property damage, major event cancellations and even the closure of Toronto’s beloved Centre Island. It’s had a rough summer, but we still think Lake Ontario is worth celebrating. Here are 20 reasons why. 1. The lake wasn’t named for the province—the province was named for the lake.
MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA-It’s only the third course, but it’s become apparent I’m in over my head. My degustation lunch at Attica started with the “Cook’s Leaves;” four individual greens dipped in a sour cream sauce. That was straightforward enough. But now we’ve been presented with another bowl of leaves, this time with strict instructions not to eat them — or the bugs. Instead, we’re meant to root under the vines for tomatoes.
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".
