The qualities of an owl include deep wisdom and intuitive knowledge. They are quick, savvy creatures who are unafraid to work hard to get what they want. These traits are not limited to the nocturnal bird, however. Wanting to give their very own owls a place to spread their wings, Vancouver’s tech darling Hootsuite designed a woodsy office space so its employees could feel right at home.
It’s the last Friday of the month at Patagonia in Kitsilano, and Nada Grocery is setting up its monthly shop. Baked goods are ready to be devoured, massive Mason jars are filled to the brim with tasty bulk goods, and scales are set to weigh it all. Sure, this pop-up store has all the qualities that a regular grocer would have, but at Nada, it’s BYOC: bring your own container. Formerly known as Zero Waste Market, Nada believes in food. Real food.
“Wow, look at this view!” Gazing upon mountains, roads, and Ken Lum’s iconic Monument for East Vancouver, a group of second-year students is admiring the sights from Emily Carr University of Art + Design’s new $122.6-million home on Great Northern Way. Relocating from Granville Island, the university has settled down in a space it can finally call its own, and on Sept. 5, 2017, it proudly let 1,800 students walk through the door.
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".
