Buffett Bullish on Canada But Not as Much on Its Housing: GlobeWarren Buffett may have thrown a lifeline to embattled Canadian alternative lender Home Capital Group Inc., but that doesn’t mean he’s as enthused about the nation’s soaring housing markets. “I’m bullish on Canada,” Buffett said, according to a transcript Toronto’s Globe and Mail newspaper published Saturday of a June 22 interview with the legendary investor.
An alliance between the left-leaning New Democratic Party and the Green Party holds a one-seat majority in the 87-member legislature -- just enough to oust the Liberals. However, they’re likely to lose that edge if they are forced to give up a member to be Speaker, without which nothing can happen in the legislature.
From there he built an empire spanning retail, manufacturing and real estate, including founding Fields Stores Ltd., a no-frills chain that became a fixture in many rural towns across western Canada. The holdings of his family’s Vancouver-based conglomerate Kingswood Capital Corp. today include interests in crib maker Stork Manufacturing Inc., a Vancouver television broadcaster, and commercial, industrial and residential real estate developments in the region.
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".
