Langis Boudreault, who often takes bike rides on Sunday afternoon, thought his Father's Day excursion would be no different — but his heart ended up pumping harder than usual. The sky was dark and overcast, the resident of Lac Saint-Jean recalled, but since there was no rain, he didn't worry. "All of a sudden, I heard a bizarre sound, which made me a think it was an [all-terrain vehicle] coming toward me" Boudreault told CBC News.
Citizens and politicians are renewing calls for Transports Québec to follow through on a 2010 promise to build a pedestrian and cycling bridge connecting the Notre-Dame-de-Grâce and Southwest boroughs. The connecting bridge was part of the original Turcot Interchange plan, but was scrapped not long into the process because it was deemed too expensive, according to the Ministry.
Some blue collar workers are frustrated and annoyed after they were called from their work in flooded areas of Pierrefonds-Roxboro Wednesday for a surprise pizza lunch with Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre. Two borough workers, who spoke with CBC anonymously because they feared repercussions at work, said they received a call on their radios from a supervisor around 10:50 a.m. . "Our boss told us to stop everything and go back to the office," said one worker.
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".
