I often say (and usually to visitors in my fair city) that Montreal is what would happen if New York and Paris had a baby - it's an accurate mash up in almost every sense. For all it's faults - not the least of which are its potholes, a controversial pitbull ban, and oft curious enforcement of language laws (#pastagate) — the art, food, fashion, festivals, culture and nightlife crammed into the tiny island of Montreal are tough to top.
As you straddle the seasonal pause between Halloween and the holidays, eyeballing unfinished bags of harvested candy whilst dreaming of sweet treats to come, you may find yourself beset with a nagging thought: I've gotta cut out sugar. And why not, health crusaders have found a worthy baddie du jour in sugar. While fat enjoys a graceful reprieve, sugar is being vilified as the cause of everything from ADHD to Alzheimer's, to cancer to diabetes to obesity. Mostly obesity.
The world over, people are celebrating Canadian... Mermen. It should be stated that they don't favour the name Merman, I use it here only to clearly identify the cryptozoological species we're dealing with. Regardless, in the States, France, Germany, and here at home, over 300 pre-orders have already been placed for a 2018 calendar featuring the Newfoundland and Labrador Beard & Moustache Club all wearing nothing but their face fur and some flashy fins.
@DaveMcKibben1 Hi Dave, thanks for reaching out. This could be a fit for us. Can you email my editors and I some background info on Nadine's book for review? ideas.goodones@gmail, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org
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".
