Friends and family members of cyclist Bradley Dean were at Richmond provincial court Wednesday in the hopes that so much as a hint of justice would be dealt to the man accused of killing him. Dean and five other cyclists were struck by a car on River Road in Richmond in November 2016. To the dismay of Dean’s family members, no criminal charges were laid in the case. Instead, Michael Wing Sing Fan faces one count of driving a motor vehicle without due care and attention.
The owner and staff at a local cycling shop have lost their patience with the City of Vancouver over road construction outside their downtown business that includes a major overhaul of key bike lanes. And they’re not alone, with other local business owners and shopkeepers agreeing the construction at and around Burrard and Pacific streets has caused parking shortages, traffic jams, inconvenience and lost revenue for far too long.
Come Christmas morning, more than 3,000 stuffed bunnies, elephants and really, really fat, fluffy sheep will find their way into the arms of B.C. children in need. The plush presents were recently donated to the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau by Vancouver realtor Bob Rennie, who has tapped into the spirit of the season early. “We love innocence at Christmas and really friendly stuffed animals, so we think the kids will love them,” he said in an interview.
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".
