Twenty-three deer were killed over the weekend, said Melanie Milczynski, manager of southwestern parks for the ministry. But some activists say killing animals is never a good solution. About 25 people were protesting the hunt outside the park with signs that said “No hunting or firearms” or “End human privilege.”“It doesn’t matter who is hunting here,” said Sheila Krekorian, a resident who lives nearby. “It’s just as wrong, just as dangerous. It’s unacceptable.
If it’s true that your eyes are a window to your soul, a Collingwood photographer has figured out how to capture and depict the souls of some of society’s most vulnerable. Leah Denbok has taken hundreds of photographs of homeless people in Toronto, Hamilton and other cities for about three years, working to replace stigmatization with compassion.
Shopkeepers prepared for the arrival of the Toronto Christmas Market in the Distillery District this week, anticipating a crush of visitors. This year’s event will be a first for the owners of Spirit of York Distillery Company, a new shop that opened in May. “It’s a nervous-excitement,” said co-owner Simon Ho. “I think we’re anxious for it to start. It’s a lot of people, and being so new it’s exciting to get to expose people to what we’re doing.
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".
