In a city like Toronto, where land is in high demand and the population is growing by leaps and bounds, it’s not surprising that a tug of war is taking place between the city’s established residents and the building industry. NIMBY – not in my back yard – is that opposition to development, in a nutshell. It’s typically seen in existing residential neighbourhoods.
Welcome to Toronto, the city of neighbourhoods. Some are good, others, not so much. But some of today’s most desirable areas weren’t on the top list 20 years back. Here are five favourite neighbourhoods that have risen from the ashes to become the hottest hot spots in town. While its name still harkens back to its origins, the Distillery District has transformed into a hotspot for arts, entertainment and real estate.
Hefty price tags aren’t weighing down sales of luxury homes in Canada’s priciest markets, according to Re/Max’s latest report released last week. Sales of homes over $1 million were up in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Victoria and Oakville, in the first nine months of 2016. While a $1-million price tag may not seem like a big deal in reference to Toronto and Vancouver housing, these markets saw a notable spike in sales of homes priced $3 million and over.
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".
