I have not been 25 in some time. But when I imagine what that age is like in 2018 I picture life being a little like Jake Boudreau’s: the bright studio apartment overlooking the pubs of spruced-up Argyle Street; the Taz Records turntable off in the corner spinning vinyl; the Big Spruce growlers atop the fridge awaiting refills; the music career that I plan to resume once I have a little free-time from my day job.
Robert Richardson and his sister Shirley Clarke are as close as two siblings can be. When he sends a card to his big sis and her husband Stephen — at Christmas or on a birthday, sometimes for no real reason at all — the businessman always closes it the same way: “Thanks for everything.”This isn’t an “all the best,” “have a great one” or one of those other vacuous valedictions. Richardson means every one of those three words. “Its about what they’ve done for us,” he told me the other day.
We’re a small place on North America’s rim, a sea-faring, martial city that is often a bit player in bigger events. But the flow of history goes both ways. We understand that. We know that things that happen here “bleed into other people’s history.”The last bit comes from the mouth of Hyacinth Simpson who teaches in the English Department at Toronto’s Ryerson University.
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".
