A French traveller hitchhiking around the world by sailboat is temporarily stuck in Cape Breton until she finds a friendly captain to take her to Newfoundland. Emilie Piriou, who is from MegĂ¨ve in the French Alps, began her travels six months ago after quitting her job. "It's to be free of any schedule," said the 31-year-old. "In my regular life I would have a schedule to get to work, to finish my work and to go back home and sporting activities.
When social worker Tom MacNeil started working at the Cape Breton Cancer Centre in Sydney, N.S., two decades ago, he expected most of his time would be dedicated to helping patients through the emotional shock of diagnosis. Instead, it's been spent helping them deal with the financial fallout.
About $100,000 in upgrades was slated for a playground in a Sydney subdivision until the property's ownership came into dispute. Property records show the subdivision developer apparently owns it and it doesn't look like he wants to play ball. It took four years of hard work for the Cantley Village Recreation Association to raise $100,000 in grants and donations to replace its old playground with new accessible equipment. Cantley Village is a subdivision in the Coxheath neighbourhood of Sydney.
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".
