Graduates who paid their way through school by serving drinks and taking orders don’t always quit the service industry when school ends. Why don’t they immediately ditch their gigs to look for a job in their field? Faraz Malik is a finance grad from the University of Ottawa and a bartender at Andaz in the ByWard Market. He got into the industry two years ago by applying to a bar where he knew people. “I enjoy bartending and serving and having that customer facing role,” says Malik.
A line of UFC fans curved around the Student Commons Nov. 22 for the meet and greet with Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson. The eleven-time defending flyweight champion held a private MMA training workshop, and a comprehensive training session to members of the Fitness Zone into his techniques and expertise. “I think this one was pretty neat because he showed us some cool moves but he really broke it down,” said Jeremy Dawson, a second-year psychology student from Carleton University.
“Welcome to the family, we’re now best friends forever,” declared Simple Plan frontman Pierre Bouvier to the crowd of almost 800 at the Algonquin Commons theatre on Sept. 20. The pop-punk concert was a part of the 15th anniversary tour of the Montreal native band’s album No Pads, No Helmets, Just Balls. The band played the whole album, which included I’m Just a Kid, Perfect, Meet you there and My Alien among others.
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".
