Organizers of the Rock 'n' Roll Oasis Montreal Marathon say while they understand some runners are disappointed this weekend's full marathon has been cancelled, the forecast heat forced them to make that call. The cancellation of the 42.2-kilometre race was announced Wednesday afternoon, days before Sunday's race was to be held. It will be unseasonably warm on Sunday — the high will reach around 28 C, but with the humidity it will feel like upwards of 36.
Two years ago, Paasa Lemire moved from her northern Quebec hometown, Kuujjuaq, to Montreal and started attending John Abbott College. She was a 17-year-old alone in the city. She was homesick, and called her parents every night in tears. Finally, after a year at school, she decided to return home. She was working at the local courthouse when she heard about a new program offered by the local school board that would allow her to get a college education with a focus on Inuit perspective.
From the players to the coaches, every member of McGill's baseball program knows he has a bull's-eye on his back. But none of them mind. "We know we're the target, and teams play like that every time they play us," said pitcher and outfielder Jack Pantalena. Tonight begins the Redmen's quest for a fourth national championship in a row. Head coach Jason Starr said year after year, the team's goal is to win it all. But striving to win and winning are two different things.
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".
