Perhaps unwilling to wait for the next episode of “Stranger Things,” a Vancouver man was caught driving with a tablet and an iPhone tied to his steering wheel, in what police say is one of the strangest cases of distracted driving they’ve ever seen. The Vancouver Police Department’s traffic division tweeted a photo of the man’s setup on Wednesday. He had an iPhone tied around the steering wheel with what appears to be string, and a Samsung tablet wedged in behind it.
Gone are the good ol’ days when chocolate or toys were the only things to be found in advent calendars. Beauty products and booze are now common adult-only alternatives to the traditional chocolate calendar. But a few adventurous ideas are capturing widespread attention this year, for good or ill.A U.K. video blogger touched off a wave of social media backlash with her review of fellow vlogger Zoella’s “lifestyle” calendar, a £50 ($84) kit with 12 items inside.
An Alberta man who survived a brutal machete attack in a Halloween night home invasion is back on his feet again, as police continue their search for two men in connection with the incident. Brian Warman lost two toes, an ear and a lot of blood in the attack, which also left him with injuries to his legs, shoulder and head. He was rushed to hospital after the incident early Nov. 1, where sutures were used to reattach the ear and close large cuts to his shoulder and scalp.
I really had fun with #justiceleague!
The team is enjoyable and it’s not nearly as depressing as BvS.
It also has a threadbare story that I know won’t hold up to a 2nd viewing, and Steppenwolf is just a video game villain with an axe.

As someone who got jerked around for 85 days during the York University strike in '08-09, it's hard not to feel for the students. Not only does this upset your school year, but it can kill your summer job prospects as well https://t.co/IkHL8zBxUj
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".
