When South Sudan gained independence from Sudan on July 9, 2011, Moses Moini hoped the family he left behind when he fled to Canada in 1992 would finally be safe. But fighting soon broke out between rival ethnic groups. In December 2013, President Salva Kiir, a Dinka, fired vice-president Riek Machar, a Nuer, and unleashed his Sudan People’s Liberation on Nuer villages. They killed and raped civilians and burned their homes.
New airlines are promising domestic flights at prices up to 50 per cent lower than what Canadians pay on Air Canada or WestJet in 2018. But will they really save you money? Ken Wong, a professor of marketing at Queen’s University, says it all depends on what level of service you expect.
Hospitals in Montreal are warning parents to take extra precautions after they say they treated several case of “severe” frostbite. Sainte-Justine Hospital posted a warning on Facebook with a photo that shows severely blistered feet. “Young children are particularly at risk,” the hospital said. The Montreal Children’s Hospital says it too has been treating frostbite during the recent cold snap.
Seriously though. Is it really worth getting this year's flu shot if it works only about 10 per cent of the time? Wouldn't it be better to just stay home and avoid all the germs in the pharmacy/doctor's office/public transit? I write this as I recover from the flu. https://twitter.com/RexallDrugstore/status/953371275304386560
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".
