It's 1980, and the federal government, led by Pierre Trudeau, is intent on repatriating Canada's constitution, bringing it out from under British Parliament and back home to Canadians. But it will come at a cost to Canada's Indigenous peoples; Aboriginal leaders fear repatriation will effectively sever all treaties signed between the British crown and the First Nations, leaving Indigenous people without rights or status.
The wait is finally over! Beyoncé posted a much-anticipated photo of her twins early Friday morning. No more talking, let's just take in the cuteness, shall we? "Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today," she wrote in the caption, confirming the birth date and rumoured names of the twins, which circulated after Beyoncé and husband Jay-Z filed a trademark on Sir and Rumi.
The struggle with fertility is a silent one for many couples. Some people don't know what to say to a couple trying to conceive, and others do damage with inappropriate questions or comments. It can lead to painful situations for everyone involved. So often, people just don't talk about it. But it seems a new ad from a greeting card company has struck a nerve with consumers and started a conversation online about fertility issues and infertility.
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".
