Runaway horses weren’t a daily occurrence, but they weren’t uncommon either. The Leader said this horse belonged to Captain Wyatt. The only male Wyatt living in Toronto in 1867 was George H. Wyatt, a ship broker who lived with his wife, children and two servants in a very fine two-storey home near the corner of Front and Peter Sts.
Christmas plum pudding: A longtime staple during the slaughtering season, the puddings used to be made with leftover bits of meat boiled in intestine, and eaten before the meal. By the 1860s, these puddings were a dessert, with currants and raisins, boiled in a special cloth or baked in a tin. After a meat-heavy main course, they were often doused in brandy and lit on fire by the lady of the house for a ceremonial flourish.
Oh, 196 York University Rocket, covered in your dusty coat of winter filth, now is the time for rest. It is a sunny, frigid day in winter exam season, and your flank reads, “The Farewell Tour.” Sure, it’s an ad for a movie unrelated to you, and nobody is holding back tears at Sheppard West Station, but this is the end, old workhorse. Soon you will be made obsolete by the opening of the subway, going the way of the streetcars on Bloor and Danforth.
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".
