Some Occupy Toronto protesters braved the cold Monday night, remaining in St. James Park and defying eviction orders, after a judge dismissed an attempt to save the month-old encampment and ruled the city's request to clear the park was "constitutionally valid." Ontario Superior Court Judge David Brown dismissed the application from Occupy Toronto members to block an eviction notice, supporting the city's attempt to evict protesters from the site and remove all of their tents and camping gear.
When Neil Sarel says that people tell him he holds an “uncanny resemblance” to Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, he’s underplaying it slightly. They have the same haircut, the same gait, a similar voice, and their similar social circle once almost scored him a role playing Ford on film. You may know Sarel better as Slurpy Ford. The 52-year-old resident of Cambridge, Ont., was pulled into the spotlight by that uncanny resemblance last year, during the early days of the Rob Ford drug scandal.
A gentle morning snowstorm that dusted Toronto streets was the talk of the city on Friday, and snickers and outright guffaws could be heard from the rest of Canada. Residents of the country's biggest city are seen as a bunch ... Continue reading →
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".
