Laneway housing is still on track to becoming an option in the city of Toronto. The laneway suites report, championed by ward 32 councillor Mary-Margaret McMahon, came to Toronto City Council on July 4. The report has since been adopted with amendments. Laneway housing has been presented as a way to address the affordable housing shortage in the city without sacrificing the character of the neighbourhoods in which they are located.
Having been open for more than 100 years now, it’s easy for Kingston Road United Church (KRUC) to point to its rich history when discussing its service within the Kingston Road community. But they’re not looking to stay in the past. Instead, they’ve got their eyes focused on the future. “The landscape has changed, which means we have to imagine new ways of being in ministry, doing in ministry, how will we exist in ministry,” said KRUC Rev. Barry King.
When it comes to engaging in recreational water activities this summer, experts are saying give it time. Especially after a rainfall. Toronto Public Health advises that people should generally wait anywhere from 12 to 48 hours after a rainfall before heading into the water. “Rainfall does have an impact on beach water quality,” explained Mahesh Patel, Toronto Public Health’s healthy environments manager.
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".
