BURNABY (NEWS 1130) – There is still tension in Burnaby, with no answers from police. Two months ago today, 13-year-old Marissa Shen went missing; she was later found dead in Central Park. When we asked people in the area about her death, the answers vary. Some say it was a one-off situation, but others say it’s changed where they move around the park.
VICTORIA (NEWS 1130) – Last week, another blow was delivered to BC’s LNG industry when the partners behind the $28 billion Aurora LNG project pulled the plug after four years of analysis. The setback is forcing many people to wonder, what is the future of liquefied natural gas in this province? NEWS 1130 put that question to an economist after the companies walked away from the project near Prince Rupert.
VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – The minimum wage has gone up in BC. It has jumped by 50 cents to $11.35/hr. However, BC’s biggest labour group wants Victoria to bump it up to $15/hr sooner rather than later. The new provincial government has promised to boost minimum wage to that level by the year 2021. But BC Federation of Labour President Irene Lanzinger says they’ll be pushing the Fair Wage Commission for faster action. “We should have a timeline consistent with Alberta and Ontario.
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".
