Questions linger for a grieving mom whose son was found dead in a swathe of Hanmer bush on the weekend. "I do have some closure, in that I'm not lying awake wondering where he is," said Sherri Lockman, who has scarcely slept since her eldest boy disappeared on Nov. 9. "But it's not really closure because we still don't have answers." The body of Tyler Haney, missing since early November, was discovered Sunday by an ATVer in a wooded area behind Centennial Arena.
A labour official representing more than a thousand employees at Health Sciences North is encouraged by steps taken recently to trim senior management but hopes front-line staff will be spared similar downsizing. "As a union person I hate to see anyone lose their job," said Dave Shelefontiuk, president of CUPE Local 1623. "But we are pleased that they have taken this first step."
A rehabbed snowy owl didn't need much time to decide it preferred the open skies to a closed cardboard box on Tuesday. Moments after Wild At Heart worker Hannah Tennet pried open the flaps on the container, the yellow-eyed beauty unfurled its black-flecked wings and flapped off into the sun, if not quite the sunset. The release took place shortly after 2 p.m., giving the big downy raptor a few hours yet of daylight to reorient herself and search for food.
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".
