Vancouver doesn’t stand much of a chance in becoming the home of the much-coveted golden goose that is Amazon’s second global headquarters. According to a new ranking by Sperling’s Best Places, Canada’s third largest city is dead last in the race based on its compilation of 18 of the most reputable studies with lists and rankings of potential locations for HQ2. In fact, none of the Canadian cities made it to the top 10.
One of the two buildings formerly occupied by Emily Carr University of Art + Design (ECUAD) will be repurposed for Arts Umbrella. Yesterday, the provincial government announced Arts Umbrella will be relocating to ECUAD’s old South Building on Granville Island, taking up 50,000 sq. ft. of space. This will grow the non-profit arts education centre’s Granville Island space by over three and a half times, as the organization is currently located in a nearby 14,000 sq. ft. space.
Mental health and addiction services at the Riverview Hospital lands will be reborn with the provincial government’s decision to proceed with the opening of a new state-of-the-art mental health and addictions facility at the site. Earlier today, construction officially began on a state-of-the-art $101-million facility on the north end of the lands as part of a new health district.
@threndyleski Thanks. Exactly, it's an undeveloped vacant parking lot site. Development of effective scale needs to happen to prevent Chinatown from being completely swallowed up by the DTES. It's already a buffer area for the DTES.
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".
