An Edmonton Catholic School Board Trustee who will not seek re-election says she no longer supports the existence of free-standing Catholic schools. Patricia Grell wrote in a blog post Wednesday morning that she chose not to seek re-election this October due in part to “interference and bullying” by school administrators and the archdiocese.
Charles Martinet, the voice of Nintendo’s Super Mario, stumbled into acting after he took a semester off of law school because he couldn’t get the instructor he wanted for the final class of his degree. “I said, ‘I’m not going to compromise, I must study with the guy that I think is the greatest teacher I’ve ever had’ – so I thought I’ll just take a quarter off,” Martinet told Metro. A friend urged him to join him in an acting class while he had time off from school.
Josh Smith came to Edmonton to take a forestry program at NAIT, but switched his career path when he found a way to harness the scents of the woods in unisex fragrances. “Some are kind of woody, I’ve got more cedar and fir notes and those sort of things – some that are more herbal and grassy, and on the other side more fruit or floral inspirations,” Smith said.
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".
