The Toronto filmmaker behind Gabarus is taking the film on the road. Jawad Mir became so fascinated by the trials and tribulations of Gabarus — a fishing village desperately trying to get the federal government to fix their seawall — that he knew he had to dig deeper. A Globe and Mail article convinced him to visit. "It's been quite a journey. I started with this in early 2013," said Mir in an interview with The Chronicle Herald. "It took me 3.5 years to get this thing done.
Splash a bit of Jason Bourne into a timely thriller about weapons of mass destruction, and you get the potboiler Green Zone. Reuniting Matt Damon with director Paul Greengrass (who helmed three Bourne films), this is a war thriller with both action and smarts. Perhaps it didn't connect with audiences expecting slam-bang action, but it's a smart film that rises above other genre fare. It's definitely one you missed in 2010 that's worth a look back.
The $1.5 million investment in the Eastlink Centre was questioned in council chambers Thursday. Councillor Wade Pilat wondered why the city was being given a proposal to raise funding from $4.3 to $5.8 million to a facility with falling revenues. "I just question why we are further giving money to something that is losing revenue," said Pilat, as Councillor Jackie Clayton also asked questions about the line item.
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".
