A man living in Montreal's Mile End neighbourhood says he's fed up with the partying, excessive trash and late-night noise emanating from a new apartment building that's being rented out on Airbnb. The five-unit building was built on Parc Avenue last year. Since then, the majority of the units have been rented out on the home-rental website. One of the ads for the building boasts a high end penthouse with a private hot tub.
A Montreal actress is adding her voice to those accusing disgraced Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment and assault. Erika Rosenbaum, 37, said there were three separate instances nearly 15 years ago where Weinstein aggressively came on to her. In the worst case, she accuses him of grabbing her by the neck in front of a mirror while masturbating behind her. "He did that while looking me right in the eye," she said.
Keen-eyed Montrealers may have noticed part of a controversial art installation in Mount Royal Park is fenced off. Some of the granite stumps, installed this year at a cost of $3.45 million, are surrounded by fences while the entrepreneur makes "corrective" changes to the stumps. A spokesperson for the city said the changes being made are minor, including making sure there's enough grass around the sites, and that they're being paid for by the entrepreneur, not the city.
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".
