Yayoi Kusama's highly-anticipated "Infinity Mirrors" art exhibit opens to the public in Toronto this weekend. Tickets for the exhibit are hard to get a hold of, with thousands of people waiting for hours online to buy them. Timed tickets are sold online in blocks, with the next block up for sale on March 6.

Last year, Didi Taihuttu dramatically downsized his life, sold his home and moved his family to a campsite so he could put their life savings into Bitcoin. The Dutch father of three sold nearly all of his family's possessions, converting the bulk of the cash into the cryptocurrency. He even sold his children's toys to fund the venture, a move he says he doesn't at all regret. It’s OK, he explained to CTVNews.ca, smiling in a Skype interview.
Young adolescent girls across the world do not see themselves as having rights or the power to make decisions about their own lives, according to a new global report. Meanwhile, a separate focus group conducted in Canada revealed Canadian girls have similar concerns. The Plan International report, released ahead of the International Day of the Girl on Oct. 11, highlights the main concerns of adolescent girls in 11 different countries across the globe.
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".
