Heather Johnston’s love affair with Vancouver is laid out in black and white in her new book. The North Vancouver fine art photographer spent a decade retracing steps from her younger years and those of her parents, before piecing them together in For the Love of Vancouver - Connections with Beauty. Johnston aimed her lens upwards at the Marine Building on Burrard Street, known for its art deco-inspired architecture and ornate lobby. It’s also where she worked as a university student.
A small pygmy owl most likely fell prey to rat poison in a residential development near Deep Cove on the weekend. Caroline Martini was driving down Raven Woods Drive, off Dollarton Highway, around 11 a.m. on Sunday, when she spotted “a small bird in the road.” An avid bird watcher, Martini was stunned by the sight. She parked, jumped out of her vehicle and ran towards the listless animal, immediately identifying it as a pygmy owl.
Five-year-old Harrison Trousdell had a special reason for donating half of his birthday money, $25, at the Montroyal fire hall. Trousdell’s dad, Gordon, who died of cancer three years ago, was assisted by North Shore firefighters and paramedics during his illness. As a way to say thank you to the first responders, Trousdell held a two-toonie birthday party in September for his friends. The youngster purchased a book with half the change and saved the rest for charity.
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".
