If you were terrified by the sound of a jet roaring over Montreal last night, you weren't alone. The CF-18 demonstration team's Canada 150 painted jet conducted a flyby over Molson Stadium before opening kickoff at the Alouettes' homeopener (a game the team won in dramatic fashion, by the way). The demonstration team posted a statement about the flyby to its Facebook page Wednesday, presumably in order to warn people about the event before it happened.
Expo 67 was, of course, a big to-do, a grandiose event with no shortage of things to see, parties to attend and food to eat. On Tuesday, some of the women who were at the centre of it all will come together in Montreal once again, but for a much more subdued affair. At least 22 of the 60 women who worked as hostesses at the Quebec pavilion, an imposing, modern building on Île Notre-Dame that is now part of the Casino de Montréal, will be attending their 50-year reunion this Tuesday.
If your viewing experience of the highly anticipated (or much maligned, depending on your perspective) lighting of the Jacques Cartier Bridge was ruined by a noisy protest, fear not, for you will have a chance to watch it again, presumably in peace. Take two of the light show is scheduled for Sunday, June 25, just over a month after Montreal police officers crashed the first event.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
