The kids at the Montreal Children's hospital received a pretty cool visit yesterday. Michael Fassbender as well as Nicolas Hoult and James McAvoiy decided to drop by the hospital before wrapping up the filming of their latest movie in Montreal. They brought some gifts, posed for photos, played even challenged the kids some video games competitions. Where do superheroes go to hang out? The Children’s, where they can meet our young superheroes face-to-face!
Getting a college or university degree isn’t for everyone. But some folks who never thought they’d attend a post-secondary education program may find themselves in the classroom to gain a rather unique degree: Canada’s first college program for growing weed. More academically titled “Commercial Cannabis Production,” the graduate certificate program will be offered by Niagara College in Ontario next fall. Again, this is Canada’s first graduate degree in the commercial production of marijuana.
There are some seriously terrifying places in this world that will always scare the sh*t out of us. Like scary abandoned asylums, foggy cemeteries that are eerily quiet, and dark dingy basements where anything could be hiding in the shadowed corners.

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".
