VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – A Vancouver city councillor is raising alarm bells about the push to get a multi-billion dollar corporation to set up shop here. An Amazon headquarters in Metro Vancouver includes a promise of creating up to 50,000 jobs, but Vancouver City Councillor Adriane Carr says the demand for housing across the region is already too high. “Where in this city, or even in this region, do we have the capacity to put that many people?
COQUITLAM (NEWS 1130) – It’s a sobering statistic: one-in-five students goes to school hungry and with classes underway across the country, the importance of breakfast is once again being stressed. One of many schools in BC benefiting from this weekend’s fundraiser for the Breakfast Club of Canada is in Coquitlam. Up to 80 of the more than 400 students currently enrolled at Ecole Maillard comes to class on an empty stomach.
VICTORIA (NEWS 1130) – Reports of money being wasted on the construction of the Port Mann bridge are being investigated by the new BC government, but there are no immediate plans to get police involved. Hundreds of documents leaked to the CBC surfaced suggesting several accounting problems apparently showing the former BC government overpaid millions of dollars to speed up work on the once-tolled crossing. It showed taxpayers may have spent $150 million too much on the $3.3 billion project.
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".
