At the beginning of every baseball season, Jesen Therrien sets himself some goals. One of those goals has always been to become a Major League pitcher. A few weeks ago, on a Saturday night in front of his family and thousands of fans, the 24-year-old from Montreal North turned that goal into a reality. The moment it sunk in, he said, wasn't when his manager told him he was going to the show. It was while he was warming up before his very first big league game.
Federal Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen wants to dissuade asylum seekers from fleeing the U.S. to seek refuge in Canada. In an interview Friday on CBC Montreal's Daybreak radio program, Hussen said while irregular crossings at Canada's borders with the U.S. aren't a new phenomenon, the practice is not something this country is promoting. "We discourage people from conducting irregular crossings of our borders," he told CBC. "It's not safe, it's not something that we want people to do.
In what has been called "an exceptional case," the Quebec man known as the "king of pharmacists" has been barred from practising his profession for the next three decades. Jonathan-Yan Perreault, 38, pleaded guilty in March to 60 counts of various charges, including drug use and falsifying his pharmaceutical licence. The disciplinary council of the Quebec Order of Pharmacists suspended Perreault's licence for 31 years and 9 months and ordered him to pay fines totalling $142,000.
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".
